Research has shown that perceived discrimination leads to negative outcomes on parental wellbeing. On the other hand, scientific literature mentions that social support leads to positive outcomes on parental wellbeing. The aim of this study is to determine the relation between perceived discrimination on parental wellbeing and between social support and parental wellbeing. Additionally, this study tries to determine if social support can be seen as a moderator between perceived discrimination and parental wellbeing. The current study focuses on an often overlooked group of vulnerable families, namely native Dutch mothers who have a low socioeconomic status with children between 3-6 years old. Mothers (n = 19) participated in a quantitative structured interview. Results of this study show that social support has a positive, though non-significant, effect on wellbeing. Perceived discrimination shows a significant negative effect on parental wellbeing. Surprisingly, the target group did not perceive a high amount of discrimination and scored high on parental wellbeing. The moderator variable was positive, but non-significant. Though the sample size of current study is small, results stress that future research should focus more on this target group and how to support them in order to prevent negative outcomes for both parents and their young children.
