Parenting Needs as Perceived by Agency Personnel Working with Parents and Young Children in Southern Nevada
Kim, YaeBin
Journal of Extension, v52 n4 Article 4RIB4 Aug 2014
Extension educators have used different methods to collect information for a needs assessment, including advisory committees, survey questionnaires, focus groups, interviews with key informants, or a combination of the former. This article describes the use of key informant interviews (agency personnel working with parents and young children) that investigated concerns about parents and needs of parents in their community, and summarizes issues uncovered related to family, agency, and community. Results identify important implications for the development of parenting programming with parents of young children and more in-depth future parenting education research.
