Overview

The Parent Child Home Program (PCHP) uses the parent-child bond to facilitate verbal interactions between parents and children that focus on books and toys introduced into the home. The program aims to work with abusive, neglectful, and at-risk parents by teaching them parenting skills. The program also aims to reinforce cognitive growth. Home visitors demonstrate styles of play and reading to stimulate verbalizations, awareness of the environment, and interaction with people on the part of the child.

Increases in the quality of the home environment in terms of parent and child behaviour, parenting skills and competence, child behaviours conducive to learning, and the quality of parent-child interaction were observed. Long-term gains were also noted for school readiness, school success, and high school completion.
