I am interested in publishing a book about research-based parenting practices. The book would attempt to "translate" academic jargon that is used in published work, so that a general, non-academic audience can benefit from research findings.
The format of any article (1000-3000 words) or chapter (5000-10000 words) would be:
I. Introduction to the "problem" - introduce the reader to an issue for parents - an obstacle, goal or strategy. This should be in the format of a story or vignette.
II. A review of 2-3 academic articles that discuss research findings about the issue
III. A section that applies these findings to everyday parenting. If the findings you have discussed are true, how might they inform parenting decisions for 2017?
