Child Development, v74 n3 p851-74 May-Jun 2003
Examined effects of time-limited welfare on children ages 5- to 17-years at a 4-year follow-up. Found that effects were moderated by families' risk of long-term welfare dependency. Found few effects for children of parents most likely to reach the welfare time limit. Found consistent negative effects for children of parents with the largest employment gains, particularly for the oldest adolescents. (Author/KB)
