The purpose of this study was to examine stress and general self-efficacy among Latino immigrant parents in California. This was achieved through quantitative cross-sectional research. The results revealed that the older Latino immigrant parents indicated higher perceived stress. Living in the United States for a longer period was associated with a higher general self-efficacy. Past or current fear of deportation was associated with higher perceived stress. Latino immigrant parents in the lowest income categories indicated higher perceived stress, as did those with a greater number of children. Latino immigrant parents who reported a smaller household size indicated greater general self-efficacy. The results may be beneficial to families, professionals, and agencies so that they may better understand and help Latino immigrant parents and their families and work to implement programs specifically for this population.
