Sensitive parenting helps children at highest medical risk

Parenting (6 & 12 months) that was sensitive to children's focus of interest and not highly controlling or restrictive predicted

Greater increases & faster rates of cognitive-language & social development @ 6, 12, 24, 40 mos.  

Relations stronger for high risk (HR; n = 73)

Vs. full-term n=112 & medically low risk but low birth weight, n=114

Sensitive behaviors may provide support HR children need to learn in spite of early attentional and organizational problems.

Confounds?
