Grolnick demonstrates incredible skill in explaining the results of scientific studies of parenting in a manner that will be relevant to all readers, be they students, scholars, clinicians, or parents. Highly recommended.
The book examines the concept of parental control and discusses what research has found about the effects of control on children's development. The book also discusses specific ways parents exert control, examines the effects of control on various goals parents have for their children, examines autonomy support, and explores how parents can implement autonomy-supportive parenting in the realms of school, sports, and social activities.
—ERIC Clearinghouse on Elementary and Early Childhood Education
It is a clear, well-written and practical text that would be useful for academic courses in psychology and teacher education and to parents as well....there is much in this book to recommend. The discussion of cultural and ethnic differences in the perceptions of parental behavior....the discussion of parental ego involvement, particularly as it relates to the child's intelligence and school success, could be enlarged into a book unto itself....the discussion of informational vs. controlling praise is as interesting as it is counter-intuitive. This book is recommended with the hope that it gets a wide reading.
