Responsive relationships are important in young children’s early development, but the ways in which fathers and mothers work together as a system — as well as the role of shared parental responsiveness in child development — are not well understood. In this presentation, Dr. Joyce Lee will discuss findings on the effects of shared parental responsiveness between fathers and mothers in low-income households on preschoolers’ developmental outcomes. The specific developmental outcomes studied include children’s behavior problems, prosocial behaviors and receptive language.

Dr. Lee’s research aims to promote child welfare and family strengthening through preventing child maltreatment, supporting positive parenting and promoting the health of children in foster care. Her work is intended to inform child welfare policies and practices to improve children’s health outcomes and strengthen children’s relationships with their family members.
