o Talking to Kids About Race Improves their Mental Health: Social scientists say that conversations about race and racial identity can help prevent negative mental health outcomes among children of color and can foster resilience. Clinical child psychologist, Erlanger Turner, PhD, studied 700 Black fifth graders to determine how perceived racism affected their well-being. The study found that children who experience racism were more likely to experience depressive symptoms. However, nurturing and involved parents may help to mitigate these negative effects.
o The Many Faces of the Modern Family: Around 114,000 same-sex couples are raising kids in the United States. Developmental psychologists at the University of Kentucky followed nearly 100 adoptive families with children from early to middle childhood. They found no differences in family functioning between same-sex parents and heterosexual parents of adopted children. There was also no difference in how family make-up influenced adopted children’s behavior or how the kids thought about adoption.
