Summary

Summary

"The Process of Parenting "is a comprehensive introduction to parenting that describes the many ways parents and caregivers can translate their love and concern for children into effective parenting behavior. With a strong emphasis on the developmental process and in the changing nature of parent-children relationships over time, the book presents a wide range of theories and research with a focus on real-life applications. Two basic tasks of parenting are emphasized as ultimate ends: creating close emotional relationships with children and supporting the development of children's full potential.
