Experimental: DRIVE program
Participants in the experimental group will receive the DRIVE curriculum (15 sessions) via weekly sessions conducted in their home by a DRIVE provider.
Behavioral: DRIVE Program
The DRIVE program (Developing Relationships that Include Values of Eating and Exercise) is a home-based parent training program, which involves 15 sessions focusing on parent-child interactions, health and nutrition, and physical activity
No Intervention: Control Group
The parents in the control group will be mailed information on nutrition, physical activity, and parent-child interactions. Information on nutrition will include guidelines provided by the "MyPlate" website (http://www.choosemyplate.gov/preschoolers.html) in addition to information on proper nutrition and suggest levels of physical activity for preschoolers. Lastly, parents will be provided with the free publication, "Adventures in Parenting: How responding, Preventing, Monitoring, Mentoring, and Modeling Can Help You Be A Successful Parent," authored by National Institutes of Health, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Information covered in this document includes effective parenting strategies for children at specific ages.
- Change in Child BMIz [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 9, Week 19 ]The child's body mass index z-scores (BMIz) was calculated by dividing the the child's weight in kilograms (measured by a digital scale) by the child's height in meters (measured by a stadiometer). These measurements were taken at each assessment point (pre-, mid-, and post-assessment).
- Change in Parent BMIz [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 9, Week 19 ]The parent's body mass index z-scores (BMIz) was calculated by dividing the the parent's weight in kilograms (measured by a digital scale) by the parent's height in meters (measured by a stadiometer). These measurements were taken at each assessment point (pre-, mid-, and post-assessment).
