Rethinking Parent and Child Conflict
Grieshaber, Susan J. (2004) Rethinking Parent and Child Conflict. Changing images in early childhood. RoutledgeFalmer, New York.
Cover and Front Matter
This book is set in the context of contemporary life and depicts relationships among parents and children in four families living in a capital city in Australia. Because of the overabundance of manuals and the step-by-step advice that many provide, it is often assumed that parent and child conflict is easily resolved. The Hollywood film Parenthood implies that childrearing means a lifetime of anxiety for parents and goes as far as to suggest that after so many centuries, somebody must have found the formula for turning children into happy and successful adults. These are the capacities (innocence, naivety, vulnerability, etc.) that child development theorists have assumed are part of the child’s nature.
