Based on an evidence-focused literature
review, this paper examines existing knowledge on raising adolescents in east and
southern African countries, including Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa,
Tanzania and Zimbabwe. Country selection was based on the availability of
relevant literature and data. The vast majority of studies on parenting and
adolescent development is based on research from the global north. This
research sought to deepen understandings of family life, care practices and support
networks in the east and southern African region so as to inform policy and interventions
that seek to improve adolescent-family relations and reduce risk behaviours.
evidence-informed model for understanding the ecology of adolescent-parent relationships
in the cultural and economic contexts of the region is provided. In addition, a
framework for exploring contextually-relevant dimensions of parenting through
research and practice is offered.

bullied has been found to have a significant impact on children’s physical and
mental health, psychosocial well-being and educational performance, with
lasting effects into adulthood on health, well-being and lifetime earnings.
Little is known about bullying in low- and middle-income countries, however.
This study uses a mixed methods approach combining survey analysis of the
predictors and associations with being bullied, with qualitative data to
explore the context in which bullying occurs and the social processes that
underpin it. Findings show that better data collection and increased resource
allocation to bullying prevention are needed. The development and evaluation of
different types of effective, sustainable and scalable bullying prevention
models in low- and middle-income country contexts are priorities for
programming and research.
