Research Question

For this assignment, you're exploring the differences in parenting between affluent families and middle-class and poorer families. What are some things richer families do that poorer families can use to improve their children's success?

To answer this, you will have to develop smaller questions that can help you answer your major research question. For example, you could ask yourself:

  • What does successful mean? 
  • How do parents of wealthier backgrounds encourage or help develop successful children? 
  • How can parents of poorer backgrounds use some of these strategies?
