More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Sheila ( The Complete Book of Pregnancy and Childbirth ) and Celia (The Social Construction of Lesbianism ) Kitzinger are an English mother-daughter partnership who come to their task with clearly defined progressive goals: ``One vital element in . . . preparation for life in the modern world must be education for social and political change''; and readers who disagree with that position will find the book at least partly tendentious. Few will find fault, however, with the authors' calm common sense and realistic idealism as they ponder what to tell children about death (which has, they note wryly, ``replaced sex as the great taboo subject'') and how to deal with moral questions, prejudice, aggression and violence and the thorny aspects of friendship and other relationships. The stress is always on respecting the child as an individual and on bringing out his or her thoughts or feelings rather than imposing adult views. There is a refreshing multiculturalism at work--examples are repeatedly drawn from non- Western societies--and brief case histories and personal experiences are sensitively pk integrated. The English origins of the book are plain without being obtrusive or restrictive, and any parent who finds the political approach appealing will find this a valuable, nurturing study. (Aug.)
Library Journal
Unlike so many how-to books which offer prescriptions for raising or controlling children, this study offers a breath of fresh air by examining the ways parents communicate with their children and explaining how this process reflects parental values. Interviews with mothers, memories of childhood experiences, and cross-cultural comparisons provide a wealth of examples. Sheila Kitzinger ( The Crying Baby , LJ 4/15/89) and daughter Celia (a social psychologist) illustrate how children's feelings, rights, and self-determination are frequently undermined by parental rules and demands. They stress the importance of discussing and explaining as opposed to ``laying down the law.'' This thoughtful, well-written, and unique contribution deserves a place in most libraries.-- Ilse Heidmann Ali, Motlow State Community Coll., Tullahoma, Tenn.
