The History of Parenting Practices: An Overview! Events, Policies and Theories That Have Influenced Parenting Practices over the Last 100 Years. [Videotape and Worksheets].
Noting that parenting is a learned experience and that the source of information on parenting has changed considerably over the last 100 years, this videotape examines the history of parent education over the past 100 years, highlighting events influencing family life, policies and legislation to assist families, and parenting theories for each 20-year period beginning with 1900. The 20-minute videotape includes photos of events from 1900 to 2000, contains live footage of parent-child interaction and of early childhood centers, and discusses the theories of Freud, Watson, Gesell, Erikson, Bowlby, Skinner, Spock, Dreikurs, Piaget, Maslow, Baumrind, Bronfenbrenner, and Brazelton. The videotape notes that research has judged parent education to be effective and cites the need for an infrastructure to move the field forward and to disseminate information to more parents. An accompanying 12-page study guide provides fill-in-the-blank worksheets detailing the key points of the videotape. The study guide also provides descriptions for 7 additional student activities, such as developing an advertising campaign to promote one of the 13 child rearing theories. A table details key events, government policy, and prominent child development theorists. Additional theorists and topics are provided for further student research. The study guide concludes with an assessment of student learning and the teacher's answer key. (KB)
