Full Text: Nearly 50 Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) parent educators from across New York gathered in Ithaca in January to hear the latest evidence on effective child-rearing from Cornell professors and extension associates. At the annual in-service conference, sponsored by the Parenting in Context initiative, parent educators also shared some of their wisdom for helping families and caregivers, as they traded tips and spoke about their counties' outreach programs to build parenting skills. Cornell presenters included Jennifer Tiffany, director of outreach and community engagement for the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research (BCTR); Janis Whitlock, BCTR (pictured, above); and Maria Fitzpatrick, assistant professor of policy analysis and management.
