No Place to Play: Implications for the Interaction of Parents and Children.
Journal of Children and Poverty, v3 n1 p37-48 Win-Spr 1997
Uses J Bowbly's (1969) theory of attachment as a framework for considering the implications of a lack of outdoor access for parental strategies and for the interaction of parents and children in low-income families. It argues that having access to outdoor play opportunities is supportive of healthy child development and responsive parenting and should be prioritized in housing planning. (GR)
