Longitudinal and reciprocal relations among parent and child outcomes for Black Early Head Start families
Structural racism places Black families at heightened risk for stress, parenting challenges, and child developmental concerns. These impacts on families persist across the lifespan, though Black families also thrive in spite of the oppression they face. Federally funded programs like Early Head Start (EHS) show promise in supporting vulnerable families and children, and particularly for low-income Black families. The current study examined processes of change over time among parenting behavior, parenting stress, child behavior, and child verbal skills for low-income Black EHS participants as well as control participants.
