Abstract:
Children are exposed to many different forms of instability such as economic, geographic and family instability. These forms of instability may present risks to children’s social development. This study considered the potential buffering role of positive parenting practices on children’s social competency, in the face of instability among a community sample of 53 families with children in the 4th - 6th grade. Findings do not suggest a buffering affect of positive parenting practices on children’s social competency, although a negative correlation between geographic instability and children’s social competency was found.
