Synopsis

Let's face it: the "Leave It to Beaver" family is close to extinction, and American parents today must struggle with situations and challenges never encountered before. Tom Roberts's comprehensive overview takes into account the changing roles of modern-day parents. The book, and its systems perspective, utilizes "reframing, " or changing one's perspective, to help end the cycle of ineffective parenting and establish new and more effective patterns of raising children. Timely topics you'll read about include both parents functioning as a unit; single parents; blended families; the influences of culture on parenting; and current models of parent education, including critiques of each model.
