Nearly one-third of US parents don't know what to expect of infants
Date:5/3/2008

same families parent-child interactions while teaching a new task, and (2) from these parents self-reports of how often they engaged their child in enrichment activities (e.g. reading books, telling stories, or singing songs).

The analysis revealed that 31.2 percent of parents of infants had low-level knowledge of infant development, and that this low-level knowledge correlated with lower parental education level and income. Still, even when controlling for maternal age, education, income and mental state (e.g., depression), low-level knowledge of infant development still significantly and independently predicted parents being both less likely to enjoy healthy interactions with their infants during learning tasks and less likely to engage their children in regular enrichment activities

This is a wake-up call for pediatricians, Paradis said. At office visits, we have a prime opportunity to intervene and help realign parents expectations for their infants, and in turn, promote healthy physical, social, and emotional development for these children. On the other hand, we still have more work cut out for us additional research is needed to explore how these unrealistic expectations form in the first place.
