Abstract

This study assesses whether a brief parenting handout increases parents’ knowledge of effective parenting practices and whether it leads to improved parent-rated child behavior. Participants are parents or guardians of children currently attending elementary school or pre-school. The following measures were administered to all parents who agreed to take part in the survey portion of the study at pre-intervention and post-intervention: 1) The Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) (Goodman, 1997) was used to assess child problem behaviors, 2) Knowledge of Effective Parenting Practices (Morawska, Sanders, & Winder, 2005) was used to assess parental knowledge of parenting practices, and 3) demographic information form – was used at pre-intervention only to gather basic descriptive demographic data on parents and their children. A recruitment flyer was shared with all parents at participating schools inviting parents to take part in the study. The flyer included a link to a Qualtrics survey that contained all pre-intervention measures. The pre-intervention survey closes two weeks after the link is distributed. After close of the pre-intervention survey all parents at the participating schools receive a handout containing information about behavior management techniques such as differential attention, effective commands, and discipline methods, as well as tips for successful homework completion. Six weeks following the distribution of the handout, an invitation to the Qualtrics post-intervention survey will be sent to all parents who completed the pre-intervention survey and provided an e-mail for follow-up. This study is currently in progress and at this time has seven participants. Parents are still being recruited from elementary schools and pre-schools.
