The couple relationship is the basis of the parenting relationship which influences how well each parent separately and together impact their child. The better the quality of the relationship between the parents, the better the parent-child relationship. Infants who are described as having a highly reactive temperament, those that are harder to soothe, place greater challenges and stress on parents and are at greater risk of developing behaviour problems as they grow. Through a randomised control trial, this study examined whether the Parents as Partners co-parenting programme delivered in the early stages following the birth of an infant described by the parents as having a highly reactive temperament, enhanced the parents’ ability to co-parent, and whether there was positive change in the infants’ temperament.
