dc.description.notesSince 2008, Ciudad Juarez (Chihuahua, Mexico) has been undergoing a wave of violence due to a drug war, making the city a difficult environment in which to raise a family. This study uses qualitative methodology that incorporates 16 in-depth interviews with parents of children ages 0 5 years and 9 sets of photos from a subset of interviewed parents. The study explores how families economic, social, and cultural capital has been disrupted by the violence and how it affects children s well-being. Social and economic capital declined significantly because of the violence as families experienced crime, had increased difficulty finding and maintaining employment, and decreased their interactions outside the home. Interviews also suggested that opportunities to gain cultural capital decreased because of this isolation. Understanding the detrimental effects of violence on families capital can contribute to understanding children s well-being in violence-stricken communities. (AU)en_US
