Developmental Sequelae of Caregiver's Stressful Police Contact among Minority Children Starting School

Education, v137 n3 p257-260 Spr 2017
Employing an existing database of African American and biracial children entering metropolitan Detroit schools, we examined children of caregivers with and without reported stressful police contact. As anticipated, young children of caregivers with recent stressful police contact appear to suffer cognitive performance decrements on a nonverbal test and are rated more negatively on several behavioral items. The small size and specificity of the sample, along with the correlational nature of the analysis, lead to cautious interpretations, but the results encourage future research.
