    This article presents a brief overview of gaps by family income in some important child development outcomes. I argue that a big part of the mechanism in linking poverty to child development outcomes works through differences by family background in parenting, and I review efforts to narrow gaps in how parents interact with their children by family income. Finally, I describe my current research project, which draws on behavioral economics for insight into how parents make decisions about investing time with their children, how that process might differ by family background, and what promise those findings might hold for intervention efforts.

    This PowerPoint presentation from the 2017 NAWRS workshop summarizes how we can conceptually understand racial and ethnic disparities in TANF, where the literature identifies differences in TANF, whether those differences constitute disparities, and what the future directions are for research on racial and ethnic disparities in TANF.
