Abstract
  • School interventions have typically focused on academic and psychological outcomes for children, but can children carry positive effects home from school to influence their parents and home environments? Developmental research typically focuses on how parents influence development in their children, but this study flips this lens to ask whether children might influence their parents' development. I examine the influence of children on their parents by using evaluation data from a character development program implemented as a curriculum and a school climate intervention. Because the Positive Action (PA) program intends to increase positive behaviors in students to facilitate better relationships at school, it is possible that children are carriers of these positive behaviors when they return home at the end of the school day. The program encourages peers and school personnel to reward students for positive behaviors to both inspire future positive behaviors and to potentially crowd out opportunities for negative behaviors.
