Abuse and Neglect in Nonparental Child Care: A Risk Assessment.
Margolin, Leslie
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v53 n3 p694-704 Aug 1991
Interviewed mothers (n=982) of young children to assess factors related to children's risk of abuse and neglect by child caregivers. Results indicated children were significantly less likely to be abused in day care center or preschool than in home-based child care. Strongest correlates of neglect were child's age, caregiver's age, and child care setting. (Author/ABL)
