Product Overview

As parents struggle to balance professional and personal demands while setting a good example for their children, they need help from policy-makers who can address today's childrearing challenges. The contributions to this volume provide a foundation for understanding these thorny, multifaceted issues. It frames the influences on child development such as altered family dynamics and major life changes like immigration, as well as examining controversial issues such as the role of schools and government in children's health, adoption by same-sex couples, and the ADHD diagnosis controversy.
