Recent Widows' Kin Support and Orientations to Self-Sufficiency.
O'Bryant, Shirley L.; Morgan, Leslie A.
Gerontologist, v30 n3 p391-98 Jun 1990
Data on recently widowed women suggest that many are quite self-sufficient; however, in areas where support is needed, they largely rely on children. Widows' past experiences and attitudes toward independence influenced amount of overall help they received, whereas income, number of children, and perceived willingness of children to help affected proportion of help from children.
