Placement with Substance-Abusing Mothers vs. Placement with Other Relatives: Infant Outcomes.
Tyler, Rachelle; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v21 n4 p337-49 Apr 1997
Infant outcomes of substance-abusing mothers who either retained (N=44) or lost (N=23) custody of their children were compared. At six months, infants with their mothers demonstrated better cognitive development than infants with relatives; however, there were three deaths and two cases of suspected child abuse/neglect among infants with mothers, and no deaths or suspected abuse among infants with relatives.
