Parenting enhancement among Egyptian mothers in a tertiary care setting.Pediatr Nurs. 1992 Jul-Aug; 18(4):329-36, 386.PN
This study tested the efficacy and effectiveness of systematically planned parenting enhancement program aimed toward breaking the cycle of high-risk mothers producing high-risk babies in Egypt. The assumption is that self-esteem and self-care are requisites to effective parenting, which can be enhanced or impeded by human and environmental forces. Given that parenting is a learned behavior, it can be repatterned by modifying human-environmental processes.
