Unequal childhoods: class, race, and family life, with an update a decade later

9780520271425 - Unequal childhoods: class, race, and family life, with an update a decade later

Artikelomschrijving

Class does make a difference in the lives and futures of American children. Drawing on in-depth observations of black and white middle-class, working-class, and poor families, Unequal Childhoods explores this fact, offering a picture of childhood today. Here are the frenetic families managing their childrens hectic schedules of leisure activities; and here are families with plenty of time but little economic security. Lareau shows how middle-class parents, whether black or white, engage in a process of concerted cultivation designed to draw out childrens talents and skills, while working-class and poor families rely on the accomplishment of natural growth, in which a childs development unfolds spontaneously - as long as basic comfort, food, and shelter are provided. Each of these approaches to childrearing brings its own benefits and its own drawbacks. In identifying and analyzing differences between the two, Lareau demonstrates the power, and limits, of social class in shaping the lives of Americas children.
