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.
