Scarr, Sandra; Thompson, William W.
Early Development and Parenting, v3 n2 p113-23 Jun 1994
Assessed effects of maternal employment on infants with mothers working 20 or more hours per week or fewer than 20 hours per week. Found that neither differences in maternal employment during child's first year, nor child's entry into nonmaternal care before age one, predicted differences in cognitive and socioemotional development at ages two and four.
