Studies in Parenting Series

About the Series

Studies in Parenting provides a forum for extended and integrated treatments of fundamental contemporary topics in parenting. Each volume in this series addresses a different issue in parenting, yet the series as a whole endeavors to enhance and interrelate prominent concerns in parenting theory, research, and application.  Studies in Parenting advances our understanding of who parents; who it is that parents parent; the scope of parenting; determinants of parenting; and the nature, structure, and meaning of parenting.

Studies in Parenting appeal, individually or as a series, to scientists, professionals, and parents alike. Reflecting the nature and intent of this series, contributing authors are drawn from a broad spectrum of the behavioral, social, and biological sciences -- anthropology to zoology -- with representational emphasis placed on active contributing authorities to the contemporary literature in parenting.

Individual titles in Studies in Parenting may be authored or edited. Titles are approximately 90,000 words in length.

Forthcoming Titles:

  • Maternal Teaching Strategies by Marc H. Bornstein
  • Parenting and Contemporary Childcare: Implications for Parent-Child Relationships, Child Development, and Families by Marc H. Bornstein
  • Parental Gatekeeping and Parent-Child Relationships by Sarah Schoppe-Sullivan
  • Asian Parenting Edited by Xinyin Chen
  • Global Perspectives on Parental Acceptance & Rejection: An Introduction to IPARTheory Edited by Ronald P. Rohner & Sumbleen Ali
