Abstract

This research counters deficit models by recognizing how low-income parents provide their teens with valuable forms of socio-emotional support during post-high school planning. This study looks at 160 responses from low-income, predominately Black and Latino parents. Responses about socio-emotional support were divided into four sub-themes: parents discuss post-high school plans with teens, parents give advice relating to academics, parents provide encouragement, and parents give advice over more general life matters. In this qualitative study, the responses of the parents were analyzed to give a more complete picture of the types of support low-income, minoritized parents provided their teenagers.
