Looking for articles about effective parenting practices

Type: 
Call for Papers
Location: 
Delaware, United States
Subject Fields: 
Psychology, Childhood and Education, Communication, Humanities, Social Sciences

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.
