Abstract:

This paper reports preliminary evidence of an association between mothers’ child abuse potential and the quality of young children’s home environment as a context for cognitive and social development. Sixteen mothers with infants or toddlers who were beginning participation in an intergenerational learning program targeting low-income families completed the Child Abuse Potential Inventory (CAPI; Milner, 1986) when they initially enrolled in the program. A family worker associated with the program visited each family’s home during the same week and administered the Infant-Toddler HOME Inventory (Caldwell & Bradley, 1984), a 45-min interview and observation system that assesses the quality of the home environment as a context for children’s cognitive and social development. Total scores from the CAPI and HOME Inventories were inversely associated (r = .67), as were several of the subscales from the two measures. Results indicate that the degree to which mothers endorse beliefs that typify physically abusive parents is associated with the type of parenting, predictability of care, and cognitive stimulation that their young children experience at home.
