Measuring mothers perceptions about the influences of infant caregiving practices


, : Measuring mothers perceptions about the influences of infant caregiving practices. Child Psychiatry & Human Development 13(3): 189-200

The importance of measuring mothers' perceptions of the influences of infant caregiving practices on infants' present and future well-being was discussed, with focus on the relevance of such measurement for programmatic efforts in parenting education. An instrument (Infant Caregiving Inventory, or ICI) which measures such perceptions was described. Data from 3 independent samples provided evidence regarding the following aspects of ICI scores: internal consistency, test-retest reliability, long-term stability, referent group validity and predictive validity in terms of actual parenting practices.

During the early rapid decrease of plasma cholesterol, increased liver cholesterol conc...
