July 20, 2016 (11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT)

Join your colleagues for the release of the report Parenting Matters: Supporting Parents of Children Ages 0-8 from the Board on Children, Youth, and Families.

This webinar briefing, which will take place from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20, will feature members of the study committee that authored the report who will discuss the report’s conclusions and recommendations.

The committee of experts was assembled to conduct a consensus study 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 report is intended to serve as a roadmap for the future of parenting and family support policies, practices, and research in the United States.
