Research and locate a longitudinal, cross-sectional, or sequential research article from a peer-reviewed psychology journal. The publication date needs to be between 2010 to the present from the PsycInfo Database (hard copies may also be accessed at the FIU Library). Articles that may be accessed through major internet searches are discouraged since they may not meet the purpose and criteria for this assignment.

Your summary needs to be: 700 to 900 words, 12-point font, and in APA format. If you are unfamiliar with how to complete a paper in APA format please review the APA Publication Manual for assistance on how to document a cover page, references, and a reference page. Be sure to include relevant information about the hypothesis of the study, the methodology utilized, demographics and number of participants in the study, findings, etc. For the final paragraph, include your reflections about the relevance of the study as it relates to the Psychology of Parenting.
