Predictors of Parenting Stress among Vietnamese Mothers of Young Children with and without Cognitive Delay
Shin, Jin Y.; Nhan, Nguyen Viet
Journal of Intellectual & Developmental Disability, v34 n1 p17-26 Mar 2009
Background: The study examined whether Vietnamese mothers of children with cognitive delay experienced more parenting stress compared to mothers of children without delay, and the factors that contribute to the parenting stress. Method: The study sample included 225 mothers of children with and without cognitive delays from Hue City in Vietnam. The study protocol included mothers reporting on the scales of parenting stress and perceived social support, and on demographic questions. Results: Mothers of children with cognitive delay experienced more stress. They were poorer and less educated, and perceived less social support. More mothers of these children had health issues. Having a child with cognitive delay was the strongest predictor of stress after controlling other demographic and psychosocial variables. Conclusion: Special education and early intervention services should be developed and available to educate the children with cognitive delay and support their mothers in Vietnam. Effective services also need to address their poverty and health care needs. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
