In this themed issue of the Journal of Prevention and Intervention in the Community the first four contributions provide knowledge on factors that can support or hinder positive parenting throughout children’s lives. In particular, the first article examined the spillover of work stressors on parenting behaviors and the role of spousal support as a moderator of stress spillover. The second contribution examines the association between parents’ promotion of volitional functioning and adopted children’s sense of strength of family bonds and belonging to the adoptive family. The third article analyzes the negative impact of intrusive parenting on young adult children’s romantic relationship quality and couple identity, and the fourth article examines parents’ autonomous and controlled motivations to transmit values to their adolescent children and their associations with parents’ socialization goals. Finally, the last two articles present the contents and evaluation of two parenting programs. The fifth article illustrates the development, content, and efficacy of an attachment-based intervention for parenting: the Video-feedback Intervention to promote Positive Parenting and Sensitive Discipline (VIPP-SD), while the sixth article presents a qualitative evaluation of a group-based program focused on promoting parents’ identity together with parenting skills: the Groups for Family Q3 Enrichment_Parent version (GFE_P).
