"Stop the World So I Can Get off for a While": Sources of Daily Stress in the Lives of Low-Income Single Mothers of Young Children.
Olson, Sheryl L.; Banyard, Victoria
Family Relations, v42 n1 p50-56 Jan 1993
Over 2-week period, 52 low-income single mothers of preschool-age children recorded stressful daily events and described how they attempted to cope with each episode. Most events involved stressful interactions with children, particularly child misbehavior. Stressful exchanges involving other adults were frequently recorded, as were financial stressors. Found substantial inter- and intraindividual variability in coping strategies. (Author/NB)
