Definition: Estimated percentage of adults with caregiving responsibilities for children ages 0-17 for whom the experience of helping their children with schoolwork is both positive and stressful, by presence of children with special health care needs (CSHCN) in the household (e.g., in Wave 1 (Nov. 9 – Dec. 11, 2020), 33% of California caregivers living in households with one or more CSHCN had positive but stressful experiences helping their children with schoolwork).
Data Source: Family Experiences During the COVID-19 Pandemic. (Dec. 2020). Questionnaire: American Academy of Pediatrics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Prevent Child Abuse America & Tufts Medical Center; California oversample: Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health & California Essentials for Childhood Initiative (California Dept. of Public Health, Injury and Violence Prevention Branch & California Dept. of Social Services, Office of Child Abuse Prevention).
Footnote: This indicator reports on experiences about which caregivers somewhat or strongly agree with both of the following statements: (i) Helping my child(ren) with their education, including remote schoolwork, has been a positive experience, and/or has brought us closer; (ii) Helping my child(ren) with their education, including remote schoolwork, has been very stressful, and/or has resulted in increased tension at home. Children with special health care needs (CSHCN) have or are at increased risk for a chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition and require health and related services of a type or amount beyond that required by children generally. These data are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error.
