(Uysal, et al, 1998):  Lack of congruence: Parents and children reports? (Uysal, et al, 1998) Parents in TBI families overly critical of their parenting abilities A “halo effect” ….children rate parents as doing well despite TBI A “minimization effect”…children downplay the impact of TBI on parents skills A “time effect”…children accept the parent’s current abilities as “normal” since it was now 9 years on average post injury Parenting challenges in other disability groups:  Parenting challenges in other disability groups Fathers with marked ADHD symptoms tended to be more over-reactive and use authoritarian discipline strategies (Arnold, O’Leary & Edwards (1997) Mothers with ADHD were poorer at monitoring child behaviors and less consistent disciplinarians (Murray & Johnson, 2006) Children of fathers with alcoholism display increasing levels of externalizing behavior problems from an early age leading to antisocial behavior in later years (Eiden, Edwards & Leonard, 2006; Puttler,Zucker, Fitzgerald & Bingham, l998, Wong, Zucker, Fitzgerald & Puttler, 1999) Parenting challenges in other disability groups:  Parenting challenges in other disability groups Parents with co-morbid Axis I and II disorders (Johnson, Cohen, Kasen et al, 2006) Parental depression associated with Low parental affection Low parental assistance Low parental time with child Parental anxiety associated with Low parental possessiveness Low parental affection Low parental assistance Parenting challenges in other disability groups:  Parenting challenges in other disability groups Parents with co-morbid Axis I and II disorders (Johnson, Cohen, Kasen et al, 2006) When effects of parent and offspring gender and co-occurring Axis II conditions controlled for: Only Axis I association remaining: Parental anxiety disorder associated with high parental possessiveness Parental personality disorders were associated with: Parental possessiveness Inconsistent parental discipline Low parental communication Low parental praise and encouragement Parents with personality disorders were 3x more likely to engage in problematic child rearing behaviors Next steps???:  Next steps???
