Variation in perceptions of resources and in coping strategies among low-income parents likely influences parenting. The purposes of this study were to identify differences in parental profiles, as indicated by receipt of public assistance, perceptions of adequacy of resources, and coping strategies, and to examine these profiles relative to parenting. Results showed that perceptions of resource adequacy and coping strategies best differentiated parental profiles, whereas use of constructive coping strategies predicted cognitive stimulating parenting.
