Distinguished authors detail cross-cultural issues affecting youngsters, including parenting practices, gender role socialization, risk and resilience in childhood, and more. The text challenges existing beliefs about childhood development, offers current research on childrearing and socialization practices in diverse cultures, and examines social and educational policies as they relate to children and adolescents. Socialization practices within families, communities, and educational settings are included. This volume, which includes both field-based and experimental research, will appeal to practitioners, scholars, and students in the fields of child psychology, cross-cultural psychology, anthropology, sociology, child and family studies, and social work.
