Young children who suffer from abuse or neglect often develop problems with following directions and complying with the expectations of parents and other authority figures. Lack of compliance can lead to other issues, including difficulty regulating anger and academic problems.
In a new study, researchers evaluated the effectiveness of a home-visiting intervention designed for parents of children referred to Child Protective Services (CPS). The results show that children whose parents who participated in the intervention demonstrated significantly better compliance than children whose parents did not, and that parents’ sensitivity also increased.
