Parenting Capacities and Health Outcomes in Youths and Adolescents (R21): This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) solicits Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant applications from applicant organizations aimed at increasing the parenting skills and capacities of parents and caregivers to improve the health outcomes of their young and adolescent children. This is important because childhood, and particularly adolescence, is a time for the development of health habits that can last a lifetime. Moreover, adolescence is a transitional period during which experimentation and high-risk health behaviors may be displayed. The long-term consequences of health habits and behaviors often become manifest in young adulthood and adulthood. Against this backdrop, it is well documented that the probability of children and adolescents acquiring non-optimal health behaviors and developmental problems increases significantly when their adult caregivers exhibit ineffective parenting skills and practices. Thus, interventions to increase parenting skills and capacities and reduce high-risk behaviors should involve both parents and their children. Interventions targeting two or more risk factors that indicate ineffective parenting practices (e.g., lack of appropriate parental monitoring, supervision, and communication, high family conflict and disorganization, parental stress and depression, lack of parent-child bonding and negative discipline methods) that simultaneously focus on multiple high-risk adolescent health behaviors (e.g., unhealthy dietary behaviors, inadequate physical activity, tobacco use, alcohol and other drug use, sexual behaviors, and unintentional (e.g., accidents) and intentional behaviors (e.g., firearm related injuries), are fundamental to this initiative. Interventions that target the reduction of a broad range of family risk factors and simultaneously build upon protective factors are highly encouraged. Parents and similarly situated caregivers of children 10-to-18 years of age are the targets of this initiative.
