Coohey, Carol
Child Welfare, v77 n3 p291-310 May-Jun 1998
Examined relationship between mothers' motivation, capacities, and opportunities, and how much supervision their children received. Compared 95 mothers providing adequate supervision with 37 providing inadequate supervision. Found that second group was less motivated, had fewer problem-solving and social skills, and was more likely to have inadequate housing; less education and poorer problem-solving skills had greatest impact on supervision.
