New Report– Parenting Matters: Supporting Parents of Children Ages 0-8

A committee of experts—convened by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine—was assembled to examine the state of the science with respect to parenting knowledge, attitudes, and practices that support positive parent-child interactions and healthy development of children ages 0–8; strategies for supporting parents and helping them engage in parenting practices associated with healthy child development; barriers and facilitators to strengthening parenting capacity and parents’ participation in effective programs and services; and gaps in research on parenting. The product of this committee is a recently released, comprehensive volume: Parenting Matters: Supporting Parents of Children Ages 0–8. It is intended to serve as a roadmap for the future of parenting and family support policies, practices, and research in the United States. A hard copy of the report can be purchased for $70 but a PDF version can be downloaded for free from the National Academies website. Click here to get your free copy.
