Abstract

Parenting is both a biological and a social process (Lerner, Castellino, et al., 1995; Tobach & Schneirla, 1968). It is the term summarizing the set of behaviors involved across life in the relations among organisms who are usually conspecifics, and typically members of different generations or, at the least, of different birth cohorts. Parenting interactions provide resources across the generational groups and function in regard to domains of survival, reproduction, nurturance, and socialization.
