Early Indications of Resilience and Their Relation to Experiences in the Home Environments of Low Birthweight, Premature Children Living in Poverty.
Bradley, Robert H.; And Others
Child Development, v65 n2 Apr p346-60 1994
Examined caregiving environments for 243 premature, low birthweight infants living in poverty to determine effects on health and development. Found that children's health and development benefited significantly from six protective caregiving factors: (1) increased parental responsiveness; (2) availability of toys and learning materials; (3) variety of stimulation; (4) parental acceptance; (5) safe play areas; and (6) less crowded homes.
