Maternal Employment and Early Adolescent Substance Use.
Hillman, Stephen B.; Sawilowsky, Shlomo S.
Adolescence, v26 n104 p829-37 Win 1991
Examined effects of maternal employment on use of alcohol, cigarettes, marijuana, and other drugs by ninth graders (n=48). Comparison of maternal employment patterns (full-time versus part-time versus not employed outside the home) indicated no significant differences in substance use behavior among adolescents. Findings support literature on nonharmful effects of maternal employment on adolescent adjustment and behavior. (Author/NB)
