Parenting Culture Studies

Lee, Ellie

9781137304636 - Parenting Culture Studies
2e hands

Artikelomschrijving

Why do we live at a time when the minutiae of how parents raise their children - how they feed them, talk to them, play with them or discipline them - have become routine sources of public debate and policy making? Why are there now so-called parenting experts, and social movements like Attachment Parenting, telling us that science says what parents do is the cause of and solution to social problems? Parenting Culture Studies provides in-depth answers to these features of contemporary social life drawing on a wide range of sources from sociology, history, anthropology, psychology and policy studies to do so, covering developments in both Europe and North America. Key chapters cover the intensification of parenting, the rise of the parenting expert, the politicizing of parent-child relationships, and the weakening of bonds between generations. Five essays detail contemporary examples of obsessions with parenting, discussing drinking and pregnancy, attachment theory, neuroscience and family policy, fathering, and helicopter parenting.
