9780131596764: Parent-Child Relations: Context, Research, and Application (2nd Edition)

The role of parents in education has become increasingly important today.  This book puts parent-child relations in a historical and cultural context to help undergraduate students understand that there are important similarities and differences in parent-child relationships across cultures.  This approach allows students to see how culture and family variations, as well as age and gender, are related to parent-child interactions at each stage of life. 

 

The text also features in-depth coverage of parenting strategies.  These are covered early in the book to set the stage for the later chapters that focus on parenting at different stages of development.  These strategies provide guidance for parents as well as for professionals working with children and their parents or other caregivers. 

 

Each chapter now includes learning objectives, critical thinking questions, and a list of useful websites.  A new glossary of key terms has also been added.  This new edition has an increased emphasis on the various contexts of parenting as well as more examples and personal quotations from parents and children in various family circumstances.  This text prepares students to integrate theory, research, and technique while working with parents and children in various family contexts.

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.
