An evidence-based intervention system must continuously evolve in response to evidence pertaining to its effectiveness. It also needs to adapt to the changing needs, interests, and preferences of parents. This chapter identifies important challenges for program developers, implementers, and evaluators to ensure parenting programs continue to remain relevant to people’s lives. Advances in understanding the nature and causes of individual differences in parental and children’s capacities for self-regulation remain an important issue for parenting practitioners to address. This work will need to include gaining a clearer understanding of nonresponders to parenting programs. As population-based approaches become more common, there is likely to be an increase in consumer demand for quality evidence-based programs and a call for better preservice training of professionals. The advantages and limitations of “branded” parenting programs are discussed. We envision a greater values orientation in programs and a focus on building the relational competencies of young people.
