About Us | Child and Family Blog

About

We report on important and high-quality research on how family influences child development, both social/emotional and cognitive. We write for parents, teachers, childcare professionals and policy makers. We draw from the research the implications for parenting, childcare practice and policy.

We are also developing new ways of community child development science to the public. These will be announced in our newsletter (subscription link below).

This project is owned by the not-for-profit Child and Family Blog Corporation in Maryland, USA. It is financed and directed by an Academic Council.
