53 FOUR Parental relationships and parenting Elizabeth Jones introduction A large body of research suggests that the quality of the relationship between parents is related to parenting behaviours, the interactions between parent and child and child behavioural and cognitive outcomes. The quality of a relationship may affect child outcomes directly or may have an effect through parenting behaviours – that is, relationship quality may affect parenting behaviours that in turn affect child outcomes. Theoretical models have been proposed to explain both direct

Introduction COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns led, for most of our respondents, to significant changes in relationships with family, friends and neighbours. Rules on social distancing produced, as already explored in Chapters 4 and 5 , significant adjustments to everyday life, from the inclusion of temporary lanes inside supermarkets, to avoiding close contact in public spaces. At the same time, intimacy also emerged in unexpected ways, as in the case of befriending services that multiplied during the pandemic, or in different types of support

173 10 Friendships, Connections and Relationships There wasn’t much sleep in the boys’ room at the transit shelter in Italy that night. They sat atop their bunks chatting excitedly about who would stay and who would leave the next day. The shelter, it transpired, was primarily a space for rest, recovery and for building new networks and sharing information. Why, we asked several individuals among the hundreds who would sleep there each night, didn’t they go and stay at the non-governmental organization (NGO) dorm a little way away, where there were more

73 Part Two: Children, families and relationships Children – our future! The last decade has witnessed a growth in the amount of policy and service initiatives aimed at supporting the health and well-being of children and their families. Much of this work has been based on the assumption that offering a child as good an upbringing as possible has positive outcomes for the child, their family, their community and governments and society in general. The rights of the child have also received welcome attention with wider debates on balancing child and parental

173 SEVEN Making connections: building and maintaining relationships ‘[I]t all depends on the relationships that you build up ... There are a lot of actors who each have their own interests. So it’s always balancing … how you get those actors into a conversation and keep them talking.’ (Margreet – area manager, Amsterdam) The previous chapter revealed that bringing public professionals and citizens together is not sufficient in itself for integration because discussing substantive issues is a social process strongly intertwined with their relationships

Introduction Positive relationships with adults who have their best interests at heart can be a significant protective factor in enabling children and young people to safely navigate risky relationships and situations outside of their home and family. The first of the promising or effective professional responses to EFRH detailed within our typology concerns interventions and systems that draw on, or aim to build, relationships between young people and protective adults. It is increasingly recognised that it is not only relationships with parents, other

not only protects and enhances its own interests through adjustments to concessions, but also intensifies the authorisation and legitimation of segregation in the state system through smart schemes. Investigating such matters through the EPKP projects requires explanation through the TPSF. This validates the importance of exchange relationships within and between regimes of practice regarding the security and dynamics of the ERC. Research within the EPKP projects demonstrates the primacy of personal-cultural contractualism in the exchange relationships by the
