At the University of Arizona, research into human parenting approaches the question from different directions. Horst Dieter and Netzin Steklis study parenting like few others: cross-culturally through published research, but also in the trenches — or, in this case, the savannas, mountains, and jungles that are home to the families of gorillas, baboons, and other primates they’ve observed for more than 20 years.
Andrea Romero is also in the trenches, but in a more traditional approach to family studies — in towns and cities, working directly with families from all walks of life to learn what challenges them, where they find resiliency, and why some families thrive.
