Adults' Environment and Behavior: Parental Aggravation

Brief

Adults' Environment and Behavior: Parental Aggravation

Abstract

High stress and aggravation in parents are associated with poor cognitive and socioemotional development of young children. In addition, maternal emotional distress has been linked to less responsive, even hostile, parenting practices. Mandated employment, time limits on benefits, shifts in child care arrangements, and fluctuations in income are some of the challenges facing low-income parents under welfare reform.
