I am pleased to introduce this special issue on Sleep in Pediatric and Developmental Conditions, a unique three-journal collaboration between the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics (JDBP), the Journal of Pediatric Psychology (JPP), and Clinical Practice in Pediatric Psychology (CPPP).  Research regarding pediatric sleep is proliferating, and it's an exciting time to be involved in this field.  The incredible creativity and diversity of content areas to explore are evident both within this special issue of JDBP and in the companion issues of JPP and CPPP.  This collaboration came about through efforts to expand the inter-professional diversity of the Society of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics (SDBP) to psychology and a readership beyond our journal.  I have had the privilege of working with two guest editors who are experts in pediatric sleep, Dean Beebe, Ph.D. for JPP and Lisa Meltzer, Ph.D. for CPPP.  I am hopeful that researchers and clinicians alike will find our special collaborative effort to be inspiring to create and test new models and treatments to improve sleep for children with pediatric and developmental conditions.

Same-Sex and Different-Sex Parent Households and Child Health Outcomes: Findings from the National Survey of Children’s Health

Using the 2011-2012 National Survey of Children’s Health dataset, we compared spouse/partner relationships and parent-child relationships (family relationships), parenting stress, and children’s general health, emotional difficulties, coping behavior, and learning behavior (child outcomes) in households of same-sex (female) versus different-sex continuously coupled parents with biological offspring. We assessed whether associations among family relationships, parenting stress, and child outcomes were different in the two household types. We found that children with female same-sex parents and different-sex parents demonstrated no differences in outcomes, despite female same-sex parents reporting more parenting stress.
