It presents empirical research with a focus to study parenting behaviors involvement in education and the cognitive outcome in the context of racial and ethnic socialization. The study is hypothesized along the African American children under a sample of 92 mother-child data. A consistent maternal report of the parent’s involvement served as the moderator performed at the fifth-grade year. The hierarchical regression analysis demonstrated that the reports capturing the mother’s response on the cultural exposure predicted the performance of a kid in the fourth grade. Similarly, the study revealed the presence of significant interaction, suggesting that greater parental involvement and cultural exposure enabled the African Ameican children register better scores in reading passage comprehension over time.
