Abstract

This is a longitudinal study investigating the effects of language acculturation on parental warmth and problem behaviors. It includes 163 children who are Hispanic and their parents. It began when the children were 24 months old and ended when the children were in 5th grade. Results revealed that language acculturation does not have a significant effect on parental warmth or problem behaviors of children who are Hispanic. The positive implications of these findings are discussed.
