Despite its common prevalence, the etiology of schizophrenia is still elusive. Some studies suggest the involvement of several neurotransmitters, while some point out the role of genetics and environmental factors in the development of schizophrenia. Among varied proposed risk factors, several parental characteristics might constitute the risk factors for schizophrenia. Parental age, migration, and parental socioeconomic status are some of the suggested risk factors related to the development of schizophrenia in the offspring. This review aims to briefly discuss the three parental risk factors concerning the incidence of schizophrenia in the offspring.
