Parenting A Dynamic Perspective (Paperback)
|Author: George W. Holden|
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.
