HORTON, DELLA M.
FOUR OBJECTIVES WERE DESCRIBED AS PART OF THE TRAINING PROGRAM FOR MOTHERS. STEP 1 WAS TO ESTABLISH PARENTAL COOPERATION EXPLAINING THE NEED FOR INTERACTION BETWEEN MOTHER AND CHILD. STEP 2 WAS TO ERASE SOME OF THE TENSION, FEAR, AND FRUSTRATION THAT WAS AROUSED WHEN MOTHERS KNEW THEY WOULD BE TESTED BEFORE THE PROGRAM WAS UNDER WAY. STEP 3 WAS TO GIVE MOTHERS AN OVERALL VIEW OF THE VARIABLES PERCEPTUAL AND CONCEPTUAL, AS WELL AS ATTITUDINAL DEVELOPMENT IN PERSISTENCE, TOLERANCE AND DELAY OF GRATIFICATION. STEP 4 WAS TO HELP MOTHERS UNDERSTAND THE DEVELOPMENT OF THEIR CHILDREN AS THE PROCESS OF A SERIES OF SYSTEMATIC EXPERIENCES BEING LINKED TOGETHER TO FORM A COMPLETE PATTERN OF SKILLS AND UNDERSTANDING. PHASE 1 OF THE PROGRAM IN THE CLASSROOM CONSISTED OF ORIENTATION AND DIRECTED OBSERVATION. PHASE 2 CONSISTED OF DEMONSTRATION AND ROLE PLAY. PHASE 3 CONSISTED OF CLASSROOM PARTICIPATION WITH MINIMAL STRUCTURE. PHASE 4 CONSISTED OF INSTRUCTIONAL PARTICIPATION IN THE CLASSROOM. THESE 4 PHASES OF INVOLVEMENT BEGAN TO YIELD IMMEDIATE RESULTS. THE MOTHERS BEGAN TO BE CURIOUS AND TO ASK QUESTIONS. THE DATA FROM THE RESEARCH INDICATED THAT SUCH A PROGRAM CAN HAVE A MARKED EFFECT UPON THE MOTHERS FROM DISADVANTAGED BACKGROUNDS. FOR EXAMPLE, SEVERAL MOTHERS RETURNED TO SCHOOL. ALSO, SEVERAL FAMILIES PLANNED TO LEAVE FEDERAL HOUSING TO BUY THEIR OWN HOMES. (CO)
