This chapter assesses early childhood influences on the cognitive and behavioural development of children in the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) at age 5. It considers the role potential protective factors in the family environment may play and whether they can ameliorate some of the disadvantages known to influence children's development, such as family financial hardship. It investigates the relationship between family economic resources and parental and child characteristics in shaping children's developmental outcomes at age 5. It is concerned with whether family and child characteristics have a moderating influence on the effects of family hardship on young children.

Keywords:   early childhood, behavioural development, protective factors, economic resources, child characteristics, developmental outcomes, family hardship
