Poverty, Social Support, and Parental Behavior.
Hashima, Patricia Y.; Amato, Paul R.
Child Development, v65 n2 Apr p394-403 1994
Examined associations among poverty, measures of social support, and parents' reports of punitive and unsupportive behaviors, using data from the National Survey of Families and Households. Found that parents' reports of punitive behavior decreased with perceived social support and that the more help received from others, the less likely parents were to report unsupportive behavior.
