How International Research on Parenting Advances Understanding of Child Development.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

International research on parenting and child development can advance our understanding of similarities and differences in how parenting is related to children's development across countries. Challenges to conducting international research include operationalizing culture, disentangling effects within and between countries, and balancing emic and etic perspectives.
