Migration, Parenting, and Children's Behavior
Chinese Americans are one of the largest, fastest-growing, and most socioeconomically diverse immigrant populations in the United States. Two studies of the Family Development Project aim to identify different sources of stress in Chinese American immigrant families and understand their impact on family well-being.
Study 1 is an ongoing study of Chinese American immigrant parents in the Boston and Greater Boston Area. Parents participating in this study complete a brief interview and a series of questionnaires on their experiences of stress, their ways of coping with stress, and the well-being of their family. Parents participating in Study 1 must be first-generation Chinese American immigrants (i.e., born outside of the U.S.) with at least one child between the ages of 0-10.
