Parenting self-efficacy, parent depression, and healthy childhood behaviors in a low-income minority population: a cross-sectional analysis.
The study’s objective was to measure the associations between parenting self-efficacy, parent depressive symptoms, and preschool child behaviors that support healthy growth. It found that in this minority population, higher parenting self-efficacy was associated with longer child sleep and fewer meals in front of the TV, but parent depressive symptoms mitigated that protective effect for child sleep duration.

Child exposure to parental violence and psychological distress associated with delayed milestones.
The researchers examined the association between parental report of intimate partner violence (IPV) and parental psychological distress (PPD) with child attainment of developmental milestones. They found that parental report of both IPV and PPD during the first 72 months of a child’s life is significantly associated with developmental milestone failure across all 4 developmental domains and within the domains of language, personal-social, and gross motor development.
