    • Abstract:
      Many school-age children spend time in self-care (latchkey) arrangements while their parents are away from home. Analyses of data collected through a magazine-distributed questionnaire identified several variables that contribute to mothers' satisfaction with self-care arrangements. These variables can be subsumed under two general categories: (a) child's age and (b) the mother's and child's separate social networks. We discuss the implications for practitioners and policymakers. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
