Compared the child-rearing practices of 31 homeless and 28 low-income housed mothers of 3-5 yr olds in Head Start. Overall, homeless mothers provided less learning and academic stimulation, less variety in social and cultural experiences, less warmth and affection, and a less positive physical environment for their children than did housed mothers. Mothers in both living arrangements provided more language stimulation to daughters than to sons.(Authors)
