Using an ecological risk-protection perspective, explores functional changes in single African American mothers (N=96) receiving government assistance. Examines links among maternal employment, mothers' physical and psychological health, and children's attributions about causes of poverty. Maternal psychological distress was linked with children's attributions about causes of poverty. Children who did not attribute poverty to social causes had higher academic goals. (Author/JDM)
