  • Notes:
    This study investigated trajectories of parenting behaviours and children's development from infancy to early childhood, associations between parenting behaviours and children's development and how these associations vary according to socioeconomic indicators. Mothers and children were examined from an ongoing longitudinal study of families resident in the geographic area of Avon in the UK. Using growth curve modelling, four waves of data were examined when the children were 6-42 months old. Findings suggest that timing is an important factor in the relationship between parenting and children's development. The positive association between mother-child interactions and children's development was evident 12 months later, whereas engagement in outside activities had both concurrent and later positive associations with children's development. Maternal education was also highlighted as a significant moderator suggesting that interactive parenting may have a protective role for children whose mothers have lower education. (Contains 8 tables and 5 figures.)
