Abstract: Latino children suffer from many health disparities compared to their non-Latino peers. One way to minimize these health disparities is by empowering Latino parents through parenting support programs. Primary care agencies , the location where most Latino families prefer to have their physical and mental health care needs met , remain an ideal setting for implementing such parenting programs. However , little to no research has been completed on how to adapt existent primary care parenting programs to the beliefs , values , and practices of Latino families. The first manuscript is a conceptual paper which adds to the cross-cultural and community health literature by comparing existing primary care parenting programs , evaluating how well-adapted they are to the cultural needs of Latino families , and offering suggestions for further improvement. The findings from this study demonstrated that parenting programs that are implemented in primary care settings are severely lacking in their Latino cultural adaptations.
