Summary

Emphasizing the use of family systems theory to explain how the relationship between parents and children functions and operates, this text has been updated to examine parenting children issues in a contemporary society. Discussions of a family life career model, the family life spiral model, and of developmental change theories that relate to parent-child relationships, such as Erikson's theory of psychosocial development, are presented. Explores the issues that parents face from their child's conception through early adulthood, making this a rich resource for those wishing to explore the complexities of parent-child relationships.
