Abstract:
Young children are being exposed to violence at an alarming rate. Many societal issues have changed over the last three decades since Head Start began, including an increase in violence. According to Beyond the Blueprint: Directions for Research on Head Start's Families (Phillips & Cabera, 1996), violence is a major issue which should be studied to determine Head Start's role. Head Start parents were surveyed in 1996 to determine (a) how they teach their children non-violence, and (b) how they would like Head Start to support them. Surveys were analyzed and served as the basis for developing interview questions for a separate group of parents in 1997. Interviews were conducted with Head Start parents to determine (a) how their child is exposed to violence, (b) coping methods parents use when their child is exposed to violence, and (c) what parents think Head Start's role should be regarding violence. Interviews were analyzed and recommendations regarding Head Start's role are discussed.
