Editorial Reviews


Praise for the first edition:
The chapters in this Handbook are thoughtful, current, detailed, and invaluable source for scholars interested in human development, family relationships, and child care; educators involved in the design, implementation, or evaluation of programs aimed at parents; practitioners who work directly with parents and children; and policymakers concerned with child and family development. Although the four-volume set is understandably expensive, the quality and comprehensiveness of the book make it well worth the investment for scholars who specialize in parenting and parent-child relationships. At the very least, individuals should insist that their institutional libraries order the entire set for their reference collections.

Contemporary Psychology

Praise for the first edition:
It is especially admirable...that Marc Bornstein not only took on this daunting task, but successfully produced a handbook that is definitive--remarkable for its breadth of coverage, for the expertise of its contributors and the quality of chapters that they have written, and for the heuristic value that these volumes contain....a multidisciplinary treasure.

Journal of Adolescence

...this handbook is a remarkable achievement, not the least of which was that of bringing together such a large and distinguished group of contributors from so many different fields and with such varied scientific backgrounds and orientations....This valuable work should be made more accessible to parents, students, and researchers.
Contemporary Psychology

Concerned with different types of parents and the forces that shape parenting, this specifically with parent-child relationships throughout the lifespan and the parenting of children of different physical, behavioral, and intellectual needs.
