Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Taking a developmental and contextual approach to parent—child relations, this second edition acquaints students with parenting theory, research, and application. Updated and reorganized to meet more course needs, this new edition provides more strategies for understanding and supporting relations between parents and their children.

  • A Contextual Approach to Parenting. A distinctive feature of this book is the inclusion of historical as well as cultural approaches to understanding parent—child relations. It includes strong coverage of cultural variations in childrearing practices.
  • New Chapter on Parenting Children with Special Needs. This new chapter focuses on the evolving challenges of parenting children with exceptionalities and chronic illness, as well as recommendations for helping parents to meet those challenges. 
  • Early Introduction of Parenting Strategies. Now located earlier in the book, in Chapter 4, are strategies and techniques for child socialization. Earlier placement of strategies will engage students and prepare them for their work with families. 
  • Expanded and Reorganized Coverage of Parenting Challenges.  More emphasis is placed on various parenting challenges in this edition, including dealing with grief and loss (now discussed within the developmental chapters), presenting cultural and structural contexts of parenting (in two separate chapters for more depth), and expanded detail about families at risk.
  • New Resources for Deeper Understanding.  Learning objectives presented at the beginning of each chapter, useful websites located at chapter end, a glossary of key terms, and an appendix on parenting programs are new and easily accessible resources for students.

I needed this book for a collge class but kept it for a while after the class was over to reread it. The book is rich on information about developmental stages, age-related problems, different family situations, etc.
The book also raises awareness about cultural differences in child rearing or family situations. It's a good book to read for parents, yet I think it's more geared towards social workers or psychologists.

This book is exactly what I needed for my collage corse and for a fraction of the cost that the book store wanted. I was surprised about how easy it was to read and find all the answers to what I need for my class. This book was very convent and arrived just in time. I was not stressed about waiting in the long lines at a book store and paying the high prices. It was far more convent for me and my busy lifestyle. I love to shop online and this book fit in perfect to my busy life as a student and woking women. The book arrived in perfect condition and although it had a few marks on it was other wise perfect. It was not torn or ripped and had no stains or harsh smells. I could tell that it had really been taken care of and that this book was going to fit my needs perfect. The context of this book went way further then just may collage corse and I ended up keeping it after the class was over just to look through and learn more thru the years. The text was an ideal size and was easy to read. The book was organized so well that I never had any problems in class following along in the lesson. The cover was so warm and inviting that just admiring the loving families printed on its glossy cover reassured me I had made the right purchase.

Read this book for my parent child relations class and I learned so much from it. Some of the things are repetitive but overall, it is a really nice book and very interesting.
