Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Almost all books for parents focus on the way children develop. Ellen Galinsky, instead, writes about how parents develop. Drawing on the work in adult development of Erik Erikson and Daniel Levinson, she describes six distinct stages in the life of a parent: the image-making that occurs during pregnancy; the nurturing role that swallows parents up from birth through the first couple of years; the authority parents must develop as small children show independence; the interpretive stage when parents explain the world and their values to school-age children; the interdependent stage when teenagers challenge authority; and the departure years when parents let go and take stock of their accomplishments and failures.

Synopsis:

Argues that parents develop different skills and attitudes to cope with each stage in their children's lives, and looks at how parents compare their experiences with their expectations.

Synopsis:

Few parents will be able to resist tracing their own “passages” with the help of this book, and all those who do will find new insight and enjoyment at each stage.
