Turbeville Speaker Series Event with Dr. Caroline F. D. Black
Join us on Friday, Sept. 17, 2021, from 1:15-2:30 p.m. as Dr. Caroline Black presents her research, "Direct and Indirect Effects of Supportive Coparenting Relationships on Children’s Social and Behavioral Development: Does Coparenting Matter More for Children of Teenage Parents than Adult Parents?"
Although research suggests that supportive coparenting relationships promote children’s positive development, we know very little about processes that explain these associations and for whom supportive coparenting relationships matter most. The goal of this study is to examine whether warm-stimulating parenting explains the association between supportive coparenting relationships and child social and behavioral outcomes and if these effects differ by parental age. Findings suggest that supportive coparenting relationships relate differently to children’s developmental outcomes based on parent age and gender.
