Minding the Gap

By Emily Becher, Research Fellow

Three international partners have joined together to launch the Child and Family Blog as part of an effort to bridge the gap between research and policy making and practice regarding parenting and raising children. The partners are Cambridge University in the United Kingdom, Princeton University and the Brookings Institution in the United States, and the Jacobs Foundation in Switzerland. Influential scholars and practitioners in fields related to the welfare of children and families are publishing posts to the blog. See the Cowan and Cowan post on couple relationship education for an example of the blog’s interesting and informative content. Note that some bloggers write with a political aim or motivation, so keep that in mind as you review their posts. Happy reading!
