A very broad explanation with pertinent key focus of the effects of and for parents.
Easy to pinpoint theory, data and research from the contents breakdown. Every aspect of research in the book is referenced and further explored. A lovely book, easy to read. A great resource for me and my students to help with their studies.
This book would support our students to grasp the fundamentals of the theoretical perspectives on parenting. It fits in well with the key learning outcomes for this module and I will be recommending that the library invests in copies as well as notifying our University bookshop.
This book has been invaluable to the course being taught. Learners have purchased this book from their local book sellers and amazon online.
The information contained in the books covers up to level 5 and is fantastic.
Waiting for course change and likely to adopt for next year if course says close to current content. Book is very complete and helpful.
The second edition has brought attention to the subject parents at risk, it has given a deeper understanding to the issues such as violence, mental illness and parents with children who have special needs. Using the up to date research on key topics has definitely given individuals more of an insight to such problematic issues that are detrimental to parenting therefore making this a book an essential read for students and tutors.
A critical and useful text for examining best practice in service provision, particularly in education.
