From the Publisher:

Unlike other books on the market, this text conveys parenting in all of its complexities. It is parent-centered, not child-centered, highlighting such questions as why parents behave the way they do. Although the book is written from a psychological perspective, views from other disciplines-including sociology, criminology, anthropology, and pediatrics-are also discussed where appropriate. The text focuses on typical parent-child relations, emphasizing the process of parenting, and includes historical and crosscultural perspectives.

Key Features  

  • Includes selected studies and recent statistics from developing and non-Western countries
  • Features in-depth coverage of topics such as co-parenting, evolutionary views, human behavioral genetics, and religious influences, which are often absent from or superficially covered in other texts
  • Presents important clinical psychological issues, such as family violence, behavior problems, and the role of pathology in the family
  • Discusses contemporary issues, including fertility problems and daycare


Intended Audience  
This text is appropriate for students enrolled in courses such as Parenting or Parent-Child Relations in departments of psychology, human development, human ecology (home economics), family and consumer studies, sociology, education, pediatrics, social work, and nursing.
