It reinforces the value of using a rational approach in dealing with others. The father or mother who refuses to discuss issues may find that their child has decided that tantrums and threats are an effective tool in influencing others.

Biller gives compelling evidence that fathers--so relatively under-researched--are very important to sound child development. He focuses on the positive results of active paternal involvment that effect an overall family environment, which is distributively nurturing and satisfying. The presence of a caring father encourages a child's body image, self-esteem, moral standards, and other important qualities. The child-father relationship is demonstrated to impact later life adjustment. Biller establishes, too, that variations in paternal involvment influence not only children but general family well-being including spousal relationships. This is a needed and timely work essential to understanding fathers' roles and potential in family life.

divDespite being commonplace in American households a generation ago, corporal punishment of children has been subjected to criticism and shifting attitudes in recent years. Many school districts have banned it, and many child advocates recommend that parents no longer spank or strike their children. In this book, social theorist Michael Donnelly and family violence expert Murray A. Straus tap the expertise of social science scholars and researchers who address issues of corporal punishment, a subject that is now characterized as a key issue in child welfare. The contributors discuss corporal punishment, its use, causes, and consequences, drawing on a wide array of comparative, psychological, and sociological theories. Together, they clarify the analytical issues and lay a strong foundation for future research and interdisciplinary collaboration. /DIV

In the life of a person, there are probably no events, outside influences or genetic characteristics even approaching the significance of the broad category of acts and actions called parent-child relations. These include decisions and actions and lack thereof from the first day of life and sometimes throughout the life-span. They include learning by example, schooling, disciplining, coping skills, behavioural practices, eating habits, communication skills, conflict management and a plethora of other actions. This book presents new research in this dynamic field.

"Most parents of toddlers and preschoolers know a thing or two about tantrums--those epic meltdowns that seem to come out of nowhere. Even though tantrums can be part of "normal" toddler behavior, they are maddening, stressful, and exhausting. What can parents do to help everyone step back and calm down? With candor and wit, Rebecca Schrag Hershberg, psychologist and mom of two, explains the science behind why tantrums occur and what parents might unintentionally be doing to encourage them. She offers a customizable plan for nipping blowups in the bud while fostering healthy development and deeper parent-child connections. Imagine family life with equal measures of love and limits--and less drama"--

Can there be rational examples of the compatibility between natural science and Judaism? This book offers a strikingly novel perspective on traditional and contemporary Judaic practices. For those with some Judaic knowledge, there are biological explanations in these chapters not seen elsewhere. For those well-versed in evolutionary theory, the authors' perspectives suggest new approaches to the scientific study of religion. Topics include the monistic tendency, biblical polygyny, biblical family conflict, circumcision and proselytes, sacrificial-ritualistic mitzvot (obligations), periodic conjugal separation, Judaic traditionalism, male and female reproductive strategies, and the relationship between costly signaling and prestige.

The family can be a model of loving support, a crucible of pathology, or some blend of the two. Across disciplines, it is also the basic unit for studying human relationships, patterns of behavior, and influence on individuals and society. As family structures evolve and challenge previous societal norms, new means are required for understanding their dynamics, and for improving family interventions and policies. Emerging Methods in Family Research details innovative approaches designed to keep researchers apace with the diversity and complexities of today's families. This versatile idea-book offers meaningful new ways to represent multiple forms of diversity in family structure and process, cutting-edge updates to family systems models and measurement methods, and guidance on the research process, from designing projects to analyzing findings. These chapters provide not only new frameworks for basic research on families, but also prime examples of their practical use in intervention and policy studies. Contributors also consider the similarities and differences between the study of individuals and the study of family relationships and systems. Included in the coverage: Use of nonlinear dynamic models to study families as coordinated symbiotic systems. Use of network models for understanding change and diversity in the formal structure of American families. Representing trends and moment-to-moment variability in dyadic and family processes using state-space modeling techniques. Why qualitative and ethnographic methods are essential for understanding family life. Methods in multi-site trials of family-based interventions. Implementing the Multiphase Optimization Strategy (MOST) to analyze the effects of family interventions. Researchers in human development, family studies, clinical and developmental psychology, social psychology, sociology, anthropology, and social welfare as well as public policy researchers will welcome Emerging Methods in Family Research as a resource to inspire novel approaches to studying families.

"Parenting: A Child's Perspective" is neither biographical nor auto-biographical, but includes selected snap-shots form the lives of hundreds of parents and children. The author of the book spent many years observing and listening to parents and children in a wide variety of situations, and has done an excellent job of recounting these experiences without being judgmental. These experiences are not just presented, the author sought to interpret these experiences form the child's point of view, and in a most empathetic way, advises parents on how they could respond in similar situations. As one reads, one gets the feeling that one is in a counseling session with an astute professional. The interesting thing, however, is that the book is not burdened by the professional jargon that can be inhibiting to most readers. The particular technique used by the author is quite difficulty. He sought to write the book from a child's perspective and to do so without gender bias. The reader will be impressed by the fact that the author has succeeded on both counts. As you read the book you get the feeling that the author was in your home eavesdropping on your family, because the situations are so real. If you are curious about how your child might view you, the book gives insights; wanting to know how to deal with difficult issues such as sex and sibling conflicts? This book gives you an unbiased and child-centered approach. Each chapter of the book takes a major issue during the first five years of the child's life, and dissects it in a way that provides new insights to parents at every stage of the parenting process.
