Parents experience various stressors as they perform their roles in the family and these may influence
child development. The study aimed to determine the relationship of parenting stress levels on
selected cognitive processes of Grade Two students in public and private schools. Parent-respondents
accomplished a questionnaire to gather socio-demographic data and parental stress levels while three
psychometric tests were used to assess visual immediate memory, learning, and working memory of
the Grade Two students. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used for data analysis. Findings
show that 62% of the parents had low parental stress levels. More than half of the students had high
scores for visual immediate memory, more than three-fourths were in the high range for learning, and
more than half was in the low range for working memory. Educational attainment, career, household
income, income source, and primary caregiver role had significant relationships to parental stress
levels. Parental stress levels did not significantly affect the cognitive processes and the relationships
were generally negative. Parents should continuously practice effective stress management and
coping responses to prevent stress spillover to their children.
