Abstract

Recent government policies in relation to child welfare, juvenile justice and area regeneration emphasise the importance of effective parenting. Parent-focused interventions impact primarily on families living in disadvantaged communities, but there has been relatively little research into the challenges of bringing up children in these environments. Parenting and Children's Resilience in Disadvantaged Communities explores how families living in these communities manage parent-child relationships during the middle childhood. Based on two linked studies, it examines the experiences and perspectives of parents and children living in disadvantaged communities in the West of Scotland, and highlights their points of view on the stresses and risks they face and the ways in which they deal with them. This publication will benefit practitioners and policy-makers working in parenting, social exclusion and young people.
