Welcome to the SSEA Parents and Family Topic Network Blog! 

In the coming weeks, we will post some new and exciting research exploring the complex role that parents and family play in emerging adults’ development. We also hope this blog can serve as a forum for researchers interested in this topic to discuss issues relevant to our field and stay connected. 

We encourage others to consider contributing posts on their own research – if you are interested, please contact Jamie Abaied at jabaied@uvm.edu.

For members of SSEA who are not yet members of this topic network, please join and contribute to this growing area of emerging adult development! We are in need of additional voices and research ideas. We are hoping to gather socially at the upcoming SSEA conference in Miami to discuss ways in which we can grow the network and increase collaboration and facilitate research. We look forward to seeing many of you in Florida! Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions, ideas, or comments.
