Adolescents in Foster Care: Predicting Readiness for Independent Living.
Iglehart, Alfreda P.
Children and Youth Services Review, v16 n3/4 p159-69 1994
Responsibility, self-care, supportive environment, and employment were analyzed as significant indicators of readiness for independent living for adolescents in foster care. Results indicated that school performance, mental health problems, hours worked per week, total number of placements, contact with father, ethnicity, and caretaker perceptions of being asked assistance were significant predictors of these indicators.
