Parenting and stress during a pandemic

April 2020 - October 2020

Prior studies show that economic strain and social isolation are risk factors for child maltreatment. The conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic have contributed to unprecedented levels of economic strain, as well as extreme social isolation and social distancing. This research will examine how parents and families are functioning during the COVID-19 pandemic. This research will also examine parental health and wellbeing, parent-child closeness and parent-child conflict, as well as how social isolation and employment loss are associated with parenting behaviors that present risk for child maltreatment.
