Summary

This study examines parenting in 290 of the 2,322 families studied in the New Chance Demonstration, a national research and demonstration program operated between 1989 and 1992 in 10 states. The demonstration project sought to improve the economic prospects and overall well-being of low-income young mothers (ages 16 to 22) and their children through comprehensive, intensive services and to further the development and promote the health of the participants' children. The 14 chapters in this monograph are: (1) "Introduction: The Context for the New Chance Observational Study" (Zaslow); (2) "The Methodology of the New Chance Observational Study" (Morrison, Eldred, Zaslow, and Dion); (3) "Participation in Program Components That Could Affect Parenting Behavior" (Dion, Zaslow, and Morrison); (4) "The Affective Quality of Mother-Child Interaction" (Weinfield, Egeland, and Ogawa); (5) "Mother-Child Interactions Related to the Emergence of Literacy" (De Temple and Snow); (6) "Completing the Portrayal of Parenting Behavior with Interview-Based Measures" (Morrison, Zaslow, and Dion); (7) "Integration: Looking across the Differing Measures of Parenting" (Zaslow, Dion, and Morrison); (8) "Parenting in a Broader Context: An Examination of the Multiple Influences on Child Outcomes" (New Chance Observational Study Research Team); (9) "Key Findings and Their Implications" (Zaslow); (10) "Expanding the Methodological Horizons of Child Development and Survey Research" (Eldred); (11) "Implementing Observational Research Within a Survey Context" (Eldred); (12) "Findings on the Administration of the Observational Session" (Eldred); (13) "An Assessment of the Data Collection Effort and Lessons for Future Research Efforts" (Eldred); and (14) "Measurement Implications of the New Chance Observational Study" (Eldred).
