Children's Environments, v12 n4 p403-13 Dec 1995
Presents the results of an investigation of five-year-old children and their families within two contrasting groups. In one group the children were raised to play unhindered by street traffic and without adults present. In group two the children could not leave their residence unaccompanied by adults. Results indicate that an unsuitable environment considerably hinders social and motor development. (AIM)
