Personal profile

Research interests

 My research interest is focused on developing a parent education model that addresses the issue of breaking the cycle of outdated generational parenting practices, which no longer facilitates the holistic development of young children. My doctoral thesis interrogated the issue of the development of nurturing and responsive parent-child relationships by parents who were harshly parented in the context of the post-colonial society of Trinidad and Tobago.

 

Upcoming research projects:

  1. To design a parent education model which deconstructs parents parenting behaviour, before offering them alternative parenting strategies. (Why did parents choose specific parenting strategies?)
  2. To research - Navigating/balancing the voices of new parents, and the voices of infants & toddlers within the developing parent-child relationship.
