Parke et al. incorporate multiple perspectives in exploring the processes of child development.

The relationship code : deciphering genetic and social influences on adolescent development by David Reiss( Book )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 608 libraries worldwide
"The Relationship Code presents a unique theory of genetic influence while highlighting the social processes in the family that are of great importance for adolescents. These ideas, which will refresh our conceptions of psychological development, are based on the analysis of a twelve-year longitudinal study of the influence of both family relationships and genetic factors on adolescent development. The sample consisted of 720 pairs of same-sex adolescent siblings and their parents. The pairs included six different sibling types of differing degrees of biological relationship, from monozygotic twins at one extreme - siblings who are genetically identical - to genetically unrelated step-siblings at the other."--Jacket

Coping with divorce, single parenting, and remarriage : a risk and resiliency perspective by E. Mavis Hetherington( Book )
14 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 443 libraries worldwide
"This book, which is filled with reports of programmatic research, is grounded in a risk and resiliency approach to understanding family functioning and child adjustment. In the studies of families headed by single or repartnered parents, the complexity of problems and solutions alike is examined through the lens of increased theoretical and methodological sophistication. Readers from all the social sciences will find the striking diversity of situations and outcomes fascinating and the authors' explanations illuminating."--Jacket
Separate social worlds of siblings : the impact of nonshared environment on development by E. Mavis Hetherington( Book )
16 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and held by 438 libraries worldwide
One of the most notable findings in contemporary behavior genetics is that children growing up in the same family are not very comparable. Findings suggest that in order to understand individual differences between siblings it is necessary to examine not only the shared experiences but also the differences in experiences of children growing up in the same family. In the past decade a group of investigators has begun to examine the contributions of genetics, and both shared and nonshared environment to development. As with many new research endeavors, this has proven to be a difficult task with
Coping with marital transitions : a family systems perspective by E. Mavis Hetherington( Book )
13 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 436 libraries worldwide
Stress, coping, and resiliency in children and families by E. Mavis Hetherington( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 417 libraries worldwide
Stress is a universal human experience but there has not been a great amount of research on how persons, families, and groups may adapt to it and cope successfully with it. In eight chapters by different authors, this book summarizes that body of research dealing with families and shapes it into a comprehensive body of knowledge. The first two chapters present a theoretical model and a discussion of the problems and opportunities in research in the area. An interesting finding is that girls are more at risk for nonauthoritative aversive parenting when the parents are emotionally under stress. Chapter 3 examines the effects of parenting under stress in the development of behavior problems. There appears to be an interaction so that when children show more problems parental stress is increased, which leads to more problems. Chapter 4 describes how families with effective communication skills support the development of coping skills. Supportive family life decreases the impact of stressful experiences. Intact families tend to show more family support. The Georgia Longitudinal study is reported in Chapter 5. This study supports the importance of the interaction of child characteristics with parenting styles. It is somewhat different than other longitudinal research in finding that family risk factors relate only to internalizing behaviors, not externalizing. Chapters 6 and 7 report on research findings for poor, Afro American, and rural families. The final chapter proposes a model for attentional processes as the basis for encouraging the development of resilience and coping skills to handle stressful life experience

Comprised of papers written by members of the Social Science Research Council Subcommittee on Child Development in Life-Span Perspective, this book provides a representation of the current status of the relation between child development and the life- span. It suggests the possible synthesis of these two fields from both conceptual and empirical evidence. Theories and methods concerning the social, psychological, and anatomical influences on children's cognitive development through adolescence are highlighted
Family transitions by Philip A Cowan( Book )
11 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 380 libraries worldwide
This volume, the result of the second annual Summer Institute sponsored by the Family Research Consortium, focuses on family transitions--both normative and non-normative. The subject of family transitions has been a central concern of the consortium largely because studies of families in motion help to highlight mechanisms leading to adaptation and dysfunction. This text represents a collective effort to understand the techniques individuals and families employ to adapt to the pressing issues they encounter along their life course
