Seattle parents reported more consistent emotional support for child rearing than parents in other King County regions.    

In 2011, parents of children younger than 18 years old were asked, “How often do you have someone that you can turn to for day-to-day emotional help with raising children?”

Parents in Seattle were more likely than those in other regions to report having emotional support with child-raising all or most of the time.
