The Third Edition of George W. Holden’s Parenting: A Dynamic Perspective provides a highly accessible and intellectually rich review of what is currently known about parenting. Written from a psychological perspective but with applications to other disciplines, the text discusses a wide range of contemporary issues such as fertility problems, daycare, marital conflict, divorce, gay parents, and family violence. Additionally, Holden includes studies from developing and non-Western countries, as well as recent statistics on such topics as U.S. and world birthrate, birth problems, adolescent pregnancy, child injury, divorce and remarriage, child maltreatment, and certain social policy issues.
