Determining Children's Home Environments: The Impact of Maternal Characteristics and Current Occupational and Family Conditions.
Menaghan, Elizabeth G.; Parcel, Toby L.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v53 n2 p417-31 May 1991
Using National Longitudinal Survey of Youth's 1986 Mother-Child Supplement data, focused on 795 employed mothers with 3- to 6-year-old child. Results showed that occupational complexity of mother's work positively affected home environments; larger family size produced less optimal child environments; and mothers' self-esteem, locus of control, educational attainment, and age had significant effects on children's home environments.
