Parenting Stress and Child Maltreatment in Drug-Exposed Children.
Kelley, Susan J.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v16 n3 p317-28 1992
This study, with 48 infants and toddlers (24 of which were drug exposed), found that mothers who used drugs during pregnancy reported higher levels of total parenting stress, child-related stress, and parent-related stress than foster mothers and comparison mothers. A strong association between maternal use of drugs and serious child maltreatment was also found. (Author/DB)
