ABSTRACT
The article presents the findings of a study which examined the differences between how African-American and Caucasian mothers raise their children. Data of the study were based on an online survey of more than 1,400 moms in the U.S. with children under 18. The study has revealed that more than half of all African-American mothers are more likely to turn to the clergy and church for economic and emotional support. It has also found that African-American moms are twice as likely as Caucasian moms to delay major purchases during an economic downturn.
