The Strengths of Latina Mothers in Supporting Their Children's Education: "A Cultural Perspective." Research Brief. Publication #2014-29
Ramos, Manica
Child Trends
A growing body of research indicates that when parents are engaged in their children's learning and development, their children do better in school. This brief reports on what was learned through recent interviews with Latina immigrant mothers about the techniques they used to support their children's education at the most malleable stage of development, the preschool years. The interviews explored the various ways mothers supported their children's learning and development, how culture shaped their involvement, and how their involvement might enhance their children's learning and development. Implications of the findings are discussed as they relate to parent empowerment and developing supportive parent-teacher partnerships.
