Black and Latino children are at greater risk for engaging in aggressive behavior and a Texas A&M University psychology professor plans to study their parents to find out why. "What I hope to find is that ethnically diverse parents aren't advocating that their child use aggression but that they may view aggression in retaliation as appropriate," says Dr. Jamilia Blake. The study's results could help prevention programs tailor their methods to be more culturally responsive.
