Private and Local Authority Children' Homes: A Comparison.
Gibbs, Ian; Sinclair, Ian
Journal of Adolescence, v21 n5 p517-27 Oct 1998
Compared residents in 48 English local-authority children's homes with those in eight private homes. On average, residents in private homes were farther away from their family, more "difficult," more likely to be placed for "treatment," and in less contact with their families. In the residential homes, they were less likely to be bullied and under less pressure to take drugs. (Author/JDM)
