Strengthening Homeless Parents with Young Children through Meaningful Parent Education and Support
Swick, Kevin J.
Early Childhood Education Journal, v36 n4 p327-332 Feb 2009
Homeless parents of young children confront several barriers to developing effective parenting skills and dispositions. Perhaps the major barrier is that of the negative stereotype that many people use to label them. They also often have not had positive parent role models and in many cases have had to deal with the issues of violence. Parent education and support strategies can play a key role in helping homeless parents develop positive and nurturing parenting skills.
