Resumen:

"Each day there are more children being born and raised in low-income, single-parenthomes, a condition being associated to a greater bonding vulnerability between mothers andyoung children, and to a negative effect on children's mental health. This background information prometed a series of transversal and comparative studies on low-income, mother-child dyads. The global investigation includes two previous studies and two mainstudies, the first ones evaluating maternal stress and interaction quality, in single-parent andnuclear families. The results show a greater stress level and lower interactional quality insingle-parent families.The two main studies evaluated mother-child dyads of single-parent families"
