Children are of crucial importance in China. In a country where the need for children to excel in school is extremely high, a great deal of attention must be paid not only to the factors which affect children’s academic performance, but to their wellbeing. Of equal importance is the child’s place in the family and the relationships they have with other members of the family unit. It is in this spirit of seeking and improving understanding of the role of children in China that this issue collects important research from some of the best psychology journals published by Wiley, the premier publisher of psychology journals.
