Book Description

January 1987 0756763053 978-0756763053
Almost all books for parents focus on the way children develop. Ellen Galinsky, instead, writes about how parents develop. Drawing on the work in adult development of Erik Erikson and Daniel Levinson, she describes six distinct stages in the life of a parent: the image-making that occurs during pregnancy; the nurturing role that swallows parents up from birth through the first couple of years; the authority parents must develop as small children show independence; the interpretive stage when parents explain the world and their values to school-age children; the interdependent stage when teenagers challenge authority; and the departure years when parents let go and take stock of their accomplishments and failures.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because I needed it for a school report. I am studying to become an early childhood educator.
Ms. Galinsky's book was so insightful that, instead of just reading what I needed for my report (about 20% of it) I read it cover to cover.
For anyone who works with children (and, consequently) their parents, this book provides excellent insights.
Anyone who works with children knows just how much of an impact their parents and home life make on the child's progress.
This book enables the reader to learn the nature of the challenges a parent is facing from pregnancy through the "empty nest" stage.
I am certain I will refer to this book again and again. . .
While there are many books about parenting, this is the first book about "parents" that I have seen, and it is well worth a read.
