Handbook of Parenting: Children and parenting by Marc H. Bornstein Book Resume:
[All orders originating from Japan must order through Maruzen International Co., Ltd.: TEL: +81-3-3275-8582; FAX: +81-3-3275-9072; http://www.maruzen.co.jp] NEW! CD-ROM, Handbook of Parenting, Second Edition, Volumes 1-5-$150.00 (see below) Completely revised and expanded from four to five volumes, this new edition of the Handbook of Parenting appears at a time that is momentous in the history of parenting. Parenting and the family are today in a greater state of flux, question, and redefinition than perhaps ever before. We are witnessing the emergence of striking permutations on the theme of parenting: blended families, lesbian and gay parents, and teen versus fifties first-time moms and dads. One cannot but be awed on the biological front by technology that now not only renders postmenopausal women capable of childbearing, but also presents us with the possibility of designing babies. Similarly on the sociological front, single parenthood is a modern day fact of life, adult child dependency is on the rise, and parents are ever less certain of their own roles, even in the face of rising environmental and institutional demands that they take increasing responsibility for their offspring. The Handbook of Parenting concerns itself with: *different types of parents--mothers and fathers, single, adolescent, and adoptive parents; *basic characteristics of parenting--behaviors, knowledge, beliefs, and expectations about parenting; *forces that shape parenting--evolution, genetics, biology, employment, social class, culture, environment, and history; *problems faced by parents--handicap, marital difficulties, drug addiction; and *practical concerns of parenting--how to promote children's health, foster social adjustment and cognitive competence, and interact with school, legal, and public officials. Contributors to the Handbook of Parenting have worked in different ways toward understanding all these diverse aspects of parenting, and all look to the most recent research and thinking in the field to shed light on many topics every parent wonders about. Each chapter addresses a different but central topic in parenting; each is rooted in current thinking and theory, as well as classical and modern research in that topic; each has been written to be read and absorbed in a single sitting. In addition, each chapter follows a standard organization, including an introduction to the chapter as a whole, followed by historical considerations of the topic, a discussion of central issues and theory, a review of classical and modern research, forecasts of future directions of theory and research, and a set of conclusions. Of course, contributors' own convictions and research are considered, but contributions to this new edition present all major points of view and central lines of inquiry and interpret them broadly. The Handbook of Parenting is intended to be both comprehensive and state of the art. As the expanded scope of this second edition amply shows, parenting is naturally and closely allied with many other fields.
Parenting Across the Life Span by Jane Beckman Lancaster Book Resume:
Research on parenting through the life course has developed around two separate approaches. Evolutionary biology provides fresh perspectives from life history theory using behavioral ecology and parental investment theory. At the same time, the social and behavioral sciences integrates research from long-term studies of individual development and from the collection of life histories. This path-breaking book advances evolutionary, life history research by integrating perspectives of these two approaches into a biosocial science of the life course. It examines parenthood as a commitment extending throughout life and focuses on the impact on parental and child behavior of changes in the timing, distribution, and intensity of parental investment. This perspective is particularly appropriate for research on parenting since the family is the universal human institution within which the bearing and rearing of children has been based and which transmits traditions, beliefs, and values to the young.
Studies in the Assessment of Parenting by Peter Reder,Sylvia Duncan,Clare Lucey Book Resume:

It will inform Practitioners involved in day-to-day child protection work to enhance the safety and well-being of children within their families.
Creating Effective Parenting Plans by John Hartson,Brenda Payne Book Resume:
According to these pediatric psychologists, the best interest of the child calls for a developmentally appropriate parenting plan-that is, custody that accurately reflects the child's physical and psychological development. Even now this concept often faces courtroom challenges as it can conflict with the traditional lawyer-client relationship. This book explores developing alternate parenting schedules (or custody) with the child's best interest and developmental needs considered first.
Asian American Parenting and Parent-Adolescent Relationships by Stephen T. Russell,Lisa J. Crockett,Ruth K. Chao Book Resume:
The relationships between children and their parents are the building blocks for f- ily relationships throughout life. The nature of the parent-child relationship begins with parenting—the practices and strategies that parents engage in as they raise their children. Parenting during childhood sets the stage for parent-adolescent relati- ships. These relationships make a critical difference during the teenage years: we know that when parent-adolescent relationships are healthy and strong, adolescents are more likely to have high aspirations and achievement, and to make healthier choices when it comes to risk-taking. Most of the research in this ?eld has been based in the United States and has been conducted through studies of European American families. Yet a growing body of research suggests important ethnic differences in styles of parenting and the qua- ties characterizing the parent-adolescent relationship. In this area of research, most existing studies have examined ethnic and cultural group differences using widely accepted measures and concepts of parenting. Comparative studies assume that dimensions of parenting such as parental warmth or control have the same meaning across cultures; however, given that conceptualizations of adolescent-parent re- tionships have been developed and tested on samples comprised largely of European Americans, we cannot rule out the possibility that the way we understand parenting has been shaped by the predominantly Western- and U. S. -focused research in this ?eld.
The Incredible Ways of Parenting by J. O. Y. Nzamwita Uwanziga Book Resume:
The Incredible Ways of Parenting deals with important aspects of parenting, offering creative answers for many of the most common parental dilemmas and mistakes. It incorporates modern and traditional methods that serve its purpose to maintain a parent-children harmony. From infancy to being a toddler, it includes scientific explanation and psychological understanding on the children's growth supporting their physical and emotional necessities. It emphasizes to teach children to do the right thing through proper discipline which plays a crucial role of their character. It further includes practical and useful key points for the parents as their children become teens. It involves their behavior, self-esteem, physical changes, appearance, sexuality, privacy and their overall wellbeing. Moreover, it accentuates the current social issues that every parent and guardian should be aware of, such as bullying. As the teens reach puberty to the point of intimacy, courtship and marriage. This book strengthens the family bond and teaches them to pass on a positive familial connection down to the next generation. It also offers solutions on how to deal with stressful times in the best possible means and how to create a positive environment for the entire family. This book is a must-have for parents (and future parents), guardians and anyone who takes care of children especially schools and Daycares. This book can also be a valuable tool for those who are likely to encounter these realities and those who may have had handled their terms in the ineffective way. Trust me, there are incredible ways of parenting--you always wanted to know. Many call parenting a science because it involves many variables and requires proficiency in promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood, which is not an easy undertaking. And it is not easy also because each child is a different being and requires a different reaction and approach to his/ her development needs. This book is a good step in this direction as it provides helpful tips and advice to make parenting easier. I recommend it unreservedly. ---Dr. Luis Ritto, Former European Union Ambassador and Emeritus Professor at ISPD (Protocol and Diplomacy), Brussels.
Joint Custody and Shared Parenting by Jay Folberg Book Resume:
Twenty years ago, joint custody was considered a questionable parenting arrangement when a marriage dissolved. Now, with shared responsibility by both parents having become a widely accepted alternative, the debate has shifted toward examining what circumstances make it workable and the extent to which responsibility should be shared. The first edition of JOINT CUSTODY AND SHARED PARENTING, published in 1984, set the agenda for law reform and research on the effects of joint custody. The initial volume reported on preliminary data from the small research samples then available and surveyed existing law. Benefiting from the studies that have been conducted since then and from new legal developments, this second edition--completely revised and updated to encompass the wealth of new research, literature, and law--represents the collective knowledge of child developmental experts, therapists, mediators, researchers, economists, and lawyers. Part I provides an overview of the history of child custody and considerations for and against. Part II, focussing on the factors that influence the choice of joint custody, discusses when it is most likely to succeed, obstacles that can impede its acceptance, and how a workable parenting plan can be structured. Also examined are related concerns such as female dependency, inequality, and economic considerations. Part III reports the results of research on the effects of joint custody for both children and their parents. Chapters examine findings on co-parenting two years after divorce, compare joint custody with maternal and paternal sole custody arrangements, and discuss the effects of custody arrangements on preschool children, child support payments, and ongoing post-divorce conflict. In Part IV, chapters explore trends in the law, judicial preference for one type of child arrangement over another, and the effect of joint custody on Aid For Dependent Children eligibility. Also included is discussion of California's joint-custody statute and Canada's legal perspective. The book concludes with two helpful appendices: a state-by-state chart of all statutory enactments and key cases on joint custody and shared parenting; and a sample joint-custody agreement with alternative provisions to suit different circumstances. There is also an extensive bibliography. Shedding light in an accessible format on the myriad issues, questions, law, and research findings that surround the topic today, JOINT CUSTODY AND SHARED PARENTING is a timely, invaluable resource for professionals who help parents make decisions about child-care arrangements when a marriage ends.
