Marfo, Kofi; Goldman-Fraser, Jenifer; Fernandez, Mari T.
Zero to Three (J), v25 n6 p56-61 Jul 2005
The authors of this article suggest a number of areas worthy of further research regarding family disruptions that lead to children's separation from their primary caregivers. They survey the existing data and suggest questions for new research on the effects of marital divorce, maternal incarceration, maternal depression and substance abuse, and war or political turmoil on young children's development.
