From the Publisher:

A new edition of this pioneer text...one that explores relations between parents and children from a developmental perspective, a perspective enhanced in the Fourth Edition by the introduction of family systems theory as a starting point for helping students understand how relationships grow and change over time. The text examines developmental and environmental factors which affect parent-child relations, as well as the often discounted influence children exert on adult parenting behavior over the lifespan.

From the Back Cover:

Known for its interactive format and effective pedagogical features, this revised, briefer research-driven text tackles the intricacies of parent-child relationships in contemporary society. Using family systems theory, the text examines the evolution of the family, the stages of family system development, and the challenges faced by all types of families. Readers will encounter a broad range of issues to prepare for their roles as professionals working with families or as parents themselves.

 

New to This Edition:

 

  • A focus on parent-child relations and implications for parenting; less emphasis on general developmental content than in past editions
  • New coverage of immigrant families, grandparents parenting grandchildren, foster parenting, and caring for older parents

  • “Parenting Reflections” to encourage readers to examine their own beliefs about parent-child relations and consider them in the context of the content
  • Current research throughout
