    Gene-Environment Interplay in Interpersonal Relationships Across the Lifespan
Abstract
Genetically sensitive studies of parenting now have a 30-year history, offering sufficient data to draw conclusions about how genes and the environment influence parenting. The majority of this chapter focuses on summarizing this literature. The key aim was to look at potential differences in genetic and environmental influences as a function of informant, study design, age of children, and parenting dimension. Across studies we demonstrate higher heritability for negative versus positive aspects of parenting, and contextualize these findings by outlining traditional socialization theories of parenting, enabling us to draw out the implications of the behavioral genetic findings for the field of parenting more generally. Future directions for research are also suggested.
