For courses on Parenting and Parent-Child Relations.
This comprehensive and contemporary book presents parent-child relations in historical and cultural contexts, emphasizing the similarities and differences in parent-child relationships across cultures, in age and gender, and related to parent-child interactions at each stage of life, with an in-depth treatment of parenting strategies.
Uniquely, the text presents both a developmental and contextual approach to parent-child relations, acquainting students with parenting theory, research, and application, and cultural approaches to understanding parent-child relations. It includes strong coverage of cultural variations in childrearing practices, and addresses the important similarities and differences in parent-child relationships across cultures. This contemporary focus allows students to see how culture and family variations, as well as age and gender, are related to parent-child interactions at each stage of life. The text also features in-depth coverage of parenting strategies. These are covered early in the book to set the stage for the later chapters that focus on parenting at different stages of development. These strategies provide guidance for parents as well as for professionals working with children and their parents or other caregivers.
