Abstract:

Based on the latest research, jargon-free, and with no axes to grind, Parenthood in America is the work of the nationʼs most prominent authorities in psychology, sociology and health. It fills the gap between how-to books, which generally blend popular notions and authorsʼ pet theories, and specialized texts aimed at scholars. Parents, teachers, students and professionals working in the field will find indispensable information to enrich their knowledge. Parenthood in America focuses on the psychological aspects of the parent-child relationship, parenthood and child development. Cultural, social and historical matters are covered wherever relevant, and biological concepts-fertility, pregnancy, birth-receive full treatment as well. Readers will find cogent entries on the superstars of the field, both popular (Dr. Seuss, Mr. Rogers) and scholarly (Ainsworth, Bowlby, Erickson). This state-of-the-art encyclopedia provides comprehensive, original and authoritative coverage of the field of parenthood.

Also includes information on abortion, African Americans, aggressive behavior, authoritarian parent style, authoritative parenting style, autonomy, behavioral problems, child abuse, childbirth, cognitive development, communication, culture, depression, development, eating disorders, education, emotional problems, ethnicity, Sigmund Freud, grandparents, growth, health, infant feeding, infants, language and speech, marital relations, mental health, nutrition, parent child interactions, parental employment, permissive parenting style, play, pregnancy, race, role models, sex differences, sexual behavior, sexual orientation, sleep, socioeconomic status, spanking, television and violence, etc.
