Developmentally Appropriate Parent Training for Families with Young Children.
Draper, Thomas W.; Larsen, Jean M.; Rowles, RaNae
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v12 n4 p487-504 1997
Examined the value of teaching developmentally appropriate practices to parents. Randomly assigned parents to a three-month weekly training program. Found that participating families were less likely to engage in conflict during a puzzle-solving task and that parents had more age-appropriate expectations during the task. Reductions in participating families' conflicts contributed to children's better social and gross motor skills. (EV)
