Sidebotham, Peter; Heron, Jon
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v27 n3 p337-52 Mar 2003
Analysis of data on 115 British children placed in local child protection registers prior to their 6th birthday found significant relationships between low birth weight, unintended pregnancies, poor health, and developmental problems in infancy and subsequent maltreatment. Also, mothers of registered children were less likely to have reported positive attributes in their 4-week-old infant. (Contains references.) (DB)
