This presentation was made at national symposium on strategies to support and help parents. More than 200 researchers, practitioners, philanthropists, and advocates participated in the event, hosted by the Buffett Early Childhood Institute at the University of Nebraska in collaboration with the American Educational Research Association (AERA) and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The presentation discusses one of several critical issues raised in Parenting Matters: Supporting Parents of Children Ages 0-8, a landmark report from the National Academies that describes key aspects of parenting that matter for young children and identifies effective interventions such as well-child care, center-based child care such as Head Start, and home visiting programs.
