We are organizing a Special Issue on “Psychological Development in Childhood” in Sustainability, a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles in the interdisciplinary area of environmental, cultural, economic, and social sustainability of human beings and provides an advanced forum for studies related to sustainability and sustainable development.
The sustainable development challenges are related to social and emotional, cognitive and physical development in childhood. Children are the basis for all dimensions of sustainable development. Providing children with an optimal level of development, a quality education, and a feeling of safety within the family and school means they will develop their potential and their responsibilities as citizens. Therefore, investment in children is a fundamental means for sustainable development.
This Special Issue aims to explore the current state of social, emotional, cognitive and physical childhood development. Parents are the main source of socialization and development of every person from an early age. It would therefore be of interest to analyze parent–child relationships. Furthermore, this Special Issue is open to any subject area related to the impacts of the education programs and policies on early childhood development.
Finally, this issue is open to reviews, and descriptive or experimental studies that contribute new knowledge to this area, as well as new methodological proposals. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
