Handbook Of Parenting

RRP $257.99

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.

Being A Parent

RRP $32.99

The last few years has seen a tremendous increase in emotional and behavioral problems in children. Working parents, nuclear family structure, having a single child has made parenting a difficult task. Quality time is what parents are trying to juggle in their daily packed routines. Today parents may not be able to ascertain the various emotional and behavioral problems seen in children. I have tackled a few of these in the school going children like hyperactivity, behavior problems, T.V. addiction etc as well as the problems of the teenagers. Most of the times, these would be considered a part of growing up and not a serious problem. As a psychiatrist, I do feel that it is my primary duty to enlighten parents, make them aware and help them understand their children.
