Role of Parenting Skills and Parenting Style in Pediatric Weight Loss Programs

2014-08-27 03:18:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the role of different parenting skills and parenting styles in the success of children enrolled in a family-based behavioral weight control program and to compare these skills and styles to those used by families with normal weight children.

Description

Pediatric overweight has nearly tripled in the past several decades and while family-based behavioral weight control programs are the mainstay of treatment, there is considerable variability in their outcomes. Parents play an important role in the success of their children, particularly by implementing new behavioral skills. However recent evidence has also suggested that parenting style, or the way a parent interacts with their child and provides emotional support and discipline, may be another key element in pediatric weight control. Our goal is to evaluate the role of specific parenting (behavioral) skills and parenting style in the success of children enrolled in a standard family-based behavioral weight control intervention. Our goal is to examine whether specific parenting (behavioral) skills and parenting style change during the intervention and whether or not this change is related to changes in the child's BMI z-score.

BODY MASS INDEX in children (ages 2-12) and in adolescents (ages 13-18) that is grossly above the recommended cut-off for a specific age and sex. For infants less than 2 years of age, obesity is determined based on standard weight-for-length percentile measures.

A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.

A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).

The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.
