Family Life Project picture



To better understand how child characteristics, community resources, and family life contribute to the growth and development of young children



Welcome



     The Family Life Project is a five year collaboration between researchers at Penn State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, funded by the National Institute of Child Health & Human Development. The overarching goal of the project is to develop an understanding of the unique ways community, employment, family economic resources, family contexts, parent-child relationships, and individual differences among children influence development and competencies in children during their first five years.
