The P.A.R.E.N.T.S. science (Protective factors, Adverse childhood experiences, Resiliency, Epigenetics, Neurobiology, Toxic stress, and Social determinants of health) all point to the critical importance of the first years of life to lifelong development. Both primary care child health practitioners and public health entities can play particularly important roles during this period ‚Äì advancing health equity and reducing physical, social, emotional, and educational disparities.
