Dr. Cook's research interests concern the intersection between culture and parenting practices, particularly among low-income populations. She was involved in two recent research projects. One examined the parenting practices of low-income, African American mothers of toddlers. Her second project examined coparenting partnerships, or joint childrearing relationships, among single, low-income, African American mothers of preschool aged children.
