International Perspectives on Parenting and Child Development

Researchers from the Parenting Across Cultures longitudinal study presented their findings on the effects of the pandemic, health-compromising and risky behaviors, education, work, and intimate partnerships during this half-day conference. For 14 years, research teams in nine countries have been collecting dozens of measures every year from parents and children in China, Colombia, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, the Philippines, Sweden, Thailand, and the United States. The study began in 2008 with nearly 1,500 8-year-old children and their mothers and fathers. The children are now in their mid-20s.

The conference featured short talks from researchers about their findings across time and across cultures, and about their work with families around the world that informs their research perspectives and interventions.
