Maternal Employment and Child Behavioral Outcomes: A Household Economics Analysis.
Greenstein, Theodore N.
Journal of Family Issues, v14 n3 p323-54 Sep 1993
Studied effects of maternal employment and substitute child care on social behavior of four- and five-year-old children (n=2,209). Mothers from National Longitudinal Survey's youth cohort rated their child's social behavior using items from Behavioral Problems Index. In general, findings did not support contention that maternal employment is associated with negative behavioral outcomes for young children. (Author/NB)
