Smollar, Jacqueline
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n85 p47-58 Fall 1999
Reviews the history and causes of homeless children in the United States from early 19th century to the present. Explores four characteristics necessary for positive developmental pathways that are compromised for children who live on the street: sense of industry and competency, feeling connected to others and society, sense of control of one's fate, and stable sense of identity.
