Protective Factors for African American Children in Single-parent-female Headed Households
ProQuest, 2006 - 32 pages
Results from correlational analyses indicated many significant interrelations among SES, resilience factors, parenting styles, and child outcomes. Lower maternal SES was associated with less effective parenting behaviors and fewer resilience factors. However, those families who had greater external support generally displayed more effective parenting and had adolescents with fewer behavioral or academic problems. Regression analyses confirmed several of these findings: a direct relationship existed between SES and mothers' parenting, and positive parenting was associated with better adolescent outcomes. However, a relationship between SES and child problems was not found, nor did resilience factors moderate the relationships between SES and parenting or SES and adolescent problems.
