Abstract

The relationship between parents' knowledge about child development and their ability to design a quality home learning environment was examined. Two hundred and forty-three black and white mothers of infants were studied. Controlling for income and education, parents who knew more about critical environmental factors and infant normative development did score higher on the parenting skill measure.
