Parents and children: interplays and pathways to early development
John Hobcraft, University of York
The focus of this paper is on the series of measures that try to capture parenting or parental behaviours and parent-child interactions. There are a wide range of such measures, some of which are hard to classify or lack conceptual clarity, and there are several issues of overlap and possible duplication. The goals of the analysis are to disentangle which measures succeed in capturing significant pathways through parenting or parent-child interactions to developmental outcomes and the findings will be placed within the relevant literature.
