Editorial Reviews

Based on videotaping of 28 families with infants in their homes and extensive interviews with the parents, Geiger (educational psychology and statistics, State U. of New York-Albany) documents changing practices of child care in the US. In half of the families, the father had become the primary caregiver, and proved to be as nurturing and competent as mothers, though with some differences in style. In the other families too she found that childcare is now negotiated within an assumption of shared responsibility. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
