A meta-analysis of 29 studies (n=1844 families) shows statistically significant positive effects of video feedback interventions on the parenting behavior and attitude of parents and the development of the child. Parents become more skilled in interacting with their young child and experience fewer problems and gain more pleasure from their role as parent. Shorter programs appeared to be more effective in improving parenting skills. The intervention effects were smaller for the attitude domain at parent level. The experimental outcomes were smaller at child level if the parents belonged to a high-risk group.
