Growing Up in Scotland - Birth Cohort 2. Parenting a 10-month old child: attitudes, feelings, domestic organisation and activities

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

ISBN: 9781782563792

This document presents key findings on parenting from the second birth cohort of the Growing Up in Scotland study, surveyed for the first time during 2010/11 when children were aged 10 months. It considers how mothers’ attitudes to parenting, feelings and domestic organisation may be shaped by family disadvantage and parenting support; and how all these factors may in turn affect parenting activities and the parent-child relationship.

Executive Summary

Growing Up in Scotland is a large-scale longitudinal research project aimed at tracking the

lives of several cohorts of Scottish children from the early years, through childhood and beyond.

This document presents key findings on parenting from the second birth cohort, surveyed for the first time during 2010/11 when children were aged 10 months. It considers how mothers’ attitudes to parenting, feelings and domestic organisation may be shaped by family disadvantage and parenting support; and how all these factors may in turn affect parenting activities and the parent-child relationship.

Where possible, comparisons were made with parenting a ten-month old in the first birth cohort, interviewed during 2005/6.
