How parents' ideas about parenting are affected by a responsive parenting class
The research question addressed in this study is how parents' ideas about parenting are affected by a responsive parenting class. The research method used was qualitative analysis. Through the use of surveys, the author measured key components of parental style and practice of parent subjects prior to and upon completion of a six-week parent education class. Key influences were Sioux Valley Hospital and Health Systems, past and current students, elementary teaching peers, educational advisors, and other Family Life Educators. The author provides deep background on demographic and socioeconomic factors affecting parents' approach to parenting and ultimately concluded that a six-week Responsive Parenting course can positively impact parental style and practice.
