Asked 3rd Dec, 2014

Are there reports and evaluations available about the parenting program "Parents as Teachers" (of the Chile Crece Contigo strategy)?

I am doing research on parenting programs which support parents to raise their child's early literacy exposure. Also included are Honduras ("Madres Guias") and Colombia ("Familias en Accion"), and please feel free to respond if you know good resources on those. The paper is a comparative case-study to analyze effective programs in this area in Latin America. Thank you.

Parent is the first teacher of any student. Therefore parents have lots of role to play in their children education. Parent should develop a program for their at home. There is nothing students learn in school that is not at home it only depend on the home settings. Lee (2012) said parent can make much impact on the children education. You can check Lee, A.N.

See the paper by Wagner and Clayton (1999) - The Parents as Teachers Program: Results from Two Demonstrations. Although this study is located in the US, you may be interested in the finding (from one of the demonstration sites) that children from primarily Spanish-speaking Latino families benefited more than children from other language groups. Good luck with your research!

Hello Kara,
As far as I know, "Parents as a Teachers” is an intervention implemented in United States of America. In Chile is ongoing implementing a local adaptation of the original Canadian parenting programme "Nobody's Perfect”. Please, check last two abstracts posted in my featured publications at RG. kind regards, Miguel
