OFFER DESCRIPTION

Project description

The recruited research assistant will work together with Stijn Van Petegem and his team on the ERC project “Better safe than sorry? Identifying causes of overprotective parenting in a changing social world” (www.safesorry.be). The broader project focuses on overprotective parenting (sometimes labeled “helicopter parenting” or “overparenting”) during adolescence and young adulthood. Whereas the implications of such parenting practices are well-documented, less is known regarding the causes of overprotective parenting. The overall goal is to identify potential determinants, by particularly focusing on the interplay between parent-related characteristics and macrocontextual factors linked to the socio-cultural and economic context. The project brings together theories from multiple disciplines (including developmental psychology, social psychology, sociology, economics, and gender studies), thereby adopting a multi-method approach, relying on longitudinal, experimental, observational and cross-cultural research. The recruited research assistant will be particularly involved in the preparation, execution and follow-up of the longitudinal study.
