Teaching Low-Income Mothers To Teach Their Children.
Johnson, Dale L.; And Others
This study examined the effectiveness of the Avance Parent-Child Education Program, a 9-month center-based program, with an in-home component, designed to provide low-income, Mexican-American mothers of infants with parenting education and family support services. A total of 524 mother-infant diads took part in the Avance program or served in a control group. Participants were tested before the program began, at the end of the program, and 1 year after the program ended with three measures: (1) the Home Observation for Measurement of the Environment; (2) the Early Learning Questionnaire; and (3) videotaped mother-child interactions. It was found that the Avance program mothers considered themselves more effective teachers of their children than non-program mothers. The program mothers provided a more educationally stimulating home environment and more cognitive stimulation both at the end of the program and 1 year later compared to non-program mothers. (MDM)
