What does research tell us?
There is very little research on the above questions. (Please see our Resources section for some scholarly research in this area.) The current parenting literature suggests that it is important to develop and use culturally informed parenting programs. The gap in current practices and lack of information for immigrant families continues to contribute to stress on immigrant parents and families.
A new paradigm is needed to buck this trend.
