Helping Parents, Helping Children: Two-Generation Mechanisms

This issue of The Future of Children presents a range of articles that focus on the mechanisms that influence children’s development. These mechanisms could be socio-economic, emotional, educational, etc. The Future of Children desires better understanding in order to design or redesign interventions to boost child development.

A second item of focus in this issue is the ‘two-generation model’, which focuses on the premise that parents are their children’s first teachers. The model is based on the idea that serving parents and children simultaneously with high-quality intervention programs is more effective than serving them separately. The articles in this issue address the different aspects of the two-generation model as well as present case studies and applications of dual-intervention programs.
