The theoretical basis for the present study derives from the recent emergence of child care as a major issue of social policy and from the apparent influence of social networks on child care practices. The review of the literature which follows will describe the development of concern over child care policy and practice and the current state of research relative to it, with emphasis on studies of self-care. Further discussion of the role of social networks in child-care choices and the general differences between blacks and whites in the use of these networks will provide the basis for the hypothesis of the study.
