This study evaluated the intergenerational indirect effects of maternal childhood experiences on infant development through maternal scaffolding behaviors. Participants included 295 low-income mothers and their infants who were assessed prenatally and at 6 and 12 months postpartum. Results indicated that mothers who perceived their own mothers as highly supportive in childhood were more likely to engage in scaffolding behaviors with their infants, who in turn made greater developmental progress (e.g., showed less risk for developmental delay) at 12 months postpartum. Maternal adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) were not associated with parenting or infant developmental progress.
