Abstract:The war in Afghanistan and subsequent migration had a significant impact on the parenting abilities of Afghan families. The present study focuses on providing a deeper understanding of this impact on parenting with Afghan families living in the United States. The following themes emerge from a structured interview: lifestyle and socioeconomic status prior to migration, stress related to pre-migration, stress and hardship faced during migration, stress related to migrating with children, emotions related to coming to the United States, hardships experienced during the first year in the United States the parenting experience in Afghanistan versus parenting in the United States, the impact of the war and migration on the parenting experience, as well as the cultural adaptation of the children in the United States and its impact on the family. Six sets of parents participated in the study. The primary method of data collection was a structured interview developed to address the primary research questions of the study. The interview guide included questions about life pre-migration, experience of migration with children, post migration experiences, the impact of war and migration on parenting, as well as the acculturation and academic achievement of children in the United States. Results indicated that despite the participant's experience of stress and hardship during migration, for most of the parents their ability to effectively parent their children was not affected and they all raised successful children. All of the parents came from highly educated backgrounds in Afghanistan and stressed education with their children. Participants tended to minimize negative experiences and many had a need to present Afghans in a positive light. Limitations regarding generalizability of the results due to small and homogenous sample, cohort effect, experiential bias, and limitations of available research are discussed. Recommendations for clinicians and school professionals working with Afghan families, as well as recommendations for Afghan parents are provided. Suggestions for future topics and methodology with this population is also provided.
