Edited by Thomas K Babalis, Yota Xanthacou, Maria Kaila
Single-Parenting in the 21st Century: Perceptions, Issues and Implications explores and illuminates the landscape of single-parenting in the twenty-first century, during which a great number of individuals have begun parenting on their own.
Nationally and internationally recognized experts apply their multiple years of experience as researchers and offer the most complete handbook available to exploring the uncharted waters of single-parenting in the twenty-firstt century.
The volume provides in-depth answers to important questions, such as: Does being a single parent effect physical and mental health?
What is the economic status of single-mother and single-father families?
Is the psychosocial adjustment, school performance and behavior of single-parent students related to nuclear family children?
With these questions in mind, the chapters are classified into three categories: a) Single-Parenting and Health; b) Single-Parenting and Economic Disadvantage; and c) Single-Parenting and Education.
Globalization, demographic shifts, economic, cultural, social and moral crisis, and changing trends in the labor sector all signify the distinctiveness of the current moment with regards to family patterns.
This one-of-a-kind book promotes a world-view, a perspective of the multiple effects of single-parenting both on parents as well as children and presents the most recent research data on the complex issues surrounding single-parenthood.
Written with clarity and candor by worldwide researchers and experts, Single-Parenting in the 21st Century: Perceptions, Issues and Implications is an essential read for teachers, parents, administrators and policymakers at all levels.
