We are organizing a Special Issue on “Parenting and Offspring Health and Well-Being” in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Different aspects of parenting play a significant role in child development. These effects may span long into adulthood. However, there is still much to be learned on the effects of parenting on health and well-being of the offspring. For instance, more knowledge is needed on the interactions between parenting and child genotypes, moderating effects of race/ethnicity, and moderating effects of timing of parenting in relation to developmental stage. There are also recent challenges, such as increased media use by parents and by children, which are likely to affect parenting and child outcomes in the ways that are not well understood yet.
This Special Issue is open to quantitative longitudinal studies in subject areas related to “Parenting and Offspring Health and Well-Being”. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
