Walker, Susan K.; Riley, David A.
Family Relations, v50 n2 p186-93 Apr 2001
Examines the impact of mothers' involvement with their social networks upon their self-reported changes in behavior and attitudes due to parenting intervention, in this case monthly, age-paced parenting newsletters. Results show that discussing and sharing newsletters with others was associated with greater self-reported change. Individual use of newsletters and sharing of the content had effects on parenting.
