Incest Survivor Mothers: Protecting the Next Generation.
Kreklewetz, Christine M.; Piotrowski, Caroline C.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v22 n12 p1305-12 Dec 1998
A study involving 16 incest-survivor mothers with daughters between the ages of 9-14 found the mothers described themselves as very protective and often overly-protective parents, wanting to parent differently, and better, than they were parented. Many survivors strive to be the "perfect mother" including over-protecting and over-nurturing behaviors. (CR)
