Does Welfare Affect Family Processes and Adolescent Adjustment?
Kalil, Ariel; Eccles, Jacquelynne S.
Child Development, v69 n6 p1597-1613 Dec 1998
Investigated parenting behavior, parent/adolescent relationship, and adolescent attitudes and behaviors in three family types. Results showed minimal support for the hypothesis that welfare is negatively related to family processes and adolescent attitudes and behavior, although mothers receiving welfare reported fewer effective parent-management practices than their poor non-welfare counterparts.
