A model of family, child, and parental childrearing characteristics was developed and tested for predicting the cognitive competence in a sample of 10,774 six-year-olds from The Netherlands. Results of LISREL analyses showed that parent education level played a central role in explaining differences in children's cognitive competence. Family ethnic origin, use of Dutch in the home, and parental level of mastery of the Dutch language were also of influence. (Author/KB)
