Perceived Importance of Parenting Behaviors as Reported by Inmate Mothers: An Exploratory Study.
LeFlore, Larry; Holston, Mary Ann
Journal of Offender Counseling, Services & Rehabilitation, v14 n1 p5-21 1989
Examined inmate mothers' (N=120) attitudes about parenting behaviors and compared them to those of matched noncriminal mothers (N=120). Findings suggest that incarcerated mothers are as acculturated into parenting role as are noncriminal mothers. Incarcerated mothers felt very strongly about importance of mothers loving their children and guiding them to develop appropriate social behaviors and attitudes. (Author/NB)
