"Easy to follow the progression of information in the chapters. Excellent supplemental resources. Easily read and understood by students ..."
"The greatest strengths are comprehensive coverage, up-to-date material, relevant research, state-of-the-art organization, complete bibliographies, relevance to our present day challenges in education, reflective of parents', students' and teachers' concerns, and specific case studies related to parents' problems."
"The organization of the material is very easy to work with. By addressing families and parenting at the beginning, the text creates the opportunity for a course to be child-centered, beginning with a look at those surrounding the child and affecting the child most intimately."
