Effects of Maternal Work Status in Single-Parent Families on Children's Perception of Self and Family and School Achievement.
Alessandri, Steven M.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v54 n3 p417-33 Dec 1992
Mothers from low-income, single-parent families and their 10- to 12-year-old children were interviewed to assess their beliefs. Findings indicated that children with employed mothers perceived more cohesion in their families, had greater self-esteem, and were more accurate in predicting maternal beliefs than children with unemployed mothers.
