Parents in the Spotlight: Parenting Practices and Support from a Comparative Perspective Paperback
Edited by Tanja Betz, Michael-Sebastian Honig, Ilona Ostner
Children and parents have become a focus of debates on new social risks in European welfare states.
Policymaking elites have converged in defining such risks, and they have outlined new forms of parenting support to better safeguard children and activate their potential.
Increasingly, parents are suspected of falling short of public expectations.
Contributors to this special issue scrutinize this shift towards parenting as performance and report recent forms of parenting support.
