Query: Hello! I am looking to hear from a child psychologist about the impact of climate change on family planning for an article we’re working on at This is based on an interesting study that says that 91% of parents are concerned about climate change, and 53% say it has impacted their decision to have more children. Here are a few questions:

  1. How valid do you think this study is–do you think this study accurately reflects how parents feel right now?
  2. In what ways do you think climate change is influencing how people think about family size or whether or not to have children?
  3. Do you think climate change will have (or is having) an effect on birth rates in the US, if so, how?
  4. Do you see climate change causing anxiety or worry in kids? If so, how?
  5. What do you think parents can do to help kids who feel anxious about climate change–especially if they feel anxious themselves?
  6. Do you have any comments you’d like to add that were not covered by these questions?

Requirements: Please be a licensed practicing child psychologist. Please type your name/pronouns, title(s), and what hospital or university you practice/are affiliated with. Thank you so much!
