#Parenting is an interdisciplinary workshop that provides a forum for faculty and graduate students to address issues related to parenting research. The workshop aims to provide an intellectually stimulating environment that promotes cross disciplinary dialogue, information sharing, and collaboration between faculty and graduate students studying parenting. The workshop also aims to discover and apply various methodologies to the study of parenting. The topics of interest vary widely. For example, members of the workshop are interested in studying the intersection between parenting and social media, influence of genetics and social environments on parenting behaviors, and changes in parenting norms related to fatherhood. We had a very successful 2017-2018 academic year. We met biweekly with attendance typically ranging from seven to twenty per meeting. Our work together resulted in two papers being submitted to academic journals. Due to scheduling conflicts, we decided to take a break for the Fall 2018 semester. As we transition into the Winter 2019 semester, we are looking to renew the application for #Parenting RIW. We will continue to work with the same faculty sponsors and sponsoring department. One of the prior student coordinators, Joyce Lee, will serve another term as a student coordinator. A new coordinator, Garrett Pace, who is one of the founding members of the group and an active participant the previous year, will step up as another student coordinator. Joyce and Garrett will co-facilitate #Parenting RIW for Winter 2019.
