Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to describe the parenting practices of Latina mothers, as well as their relationship to children's behavioral problems and parent's educational attainment. The sample consisted of 24 Latina respondents recruited from two Family Resource Centers in Orange County, Salk and Corbin.

This study revealed that for the majority of the different parenting factors evaluated, parent's responses indicated that they often were involved with their children, set limits, were responsive, provided reasoning guidance, and intimacy. Participants reported their parenting practice of free expression as behaving that way about half of the time. Responsiveness was found to be significantly and positively related to children's behavioral problems. Limit setting and responsiveness were found to be significantly related to parent's education. This descriptive quantitative research study will further expand the knowledge base of the Latino population.
