This series of single- and double-sheet articles is designed to help parents better understand the role of parents, the skills and constraints involved in parenting, the effects of parenting on child development, and the effects of child development on parenting. The series contains a set of articles which address general aspects of parenting, discipline, parent-teen communication, and the use of a "family council" to enrich communication. Another set of articles describes emotional aspects of parent-child relations: how to communicate love to children, how to promote a positive self-concept in children, and how children experience emotions. The third set describes the social, cognitive, and physical developmental levels parents can generally expect of children at each of the first five years of life in such activities as sleeping, eating, toilet training, temper tantrums, play, cooperation, etc. The last set of articles addresses the special concerns of child abuse and neglect, self-care for children, dual career families, day care, and single parent families. Each of the articles briefly discusses the issues involved in each topic and offers recommendations to help parents cope with the responsibilities of parenthood. (BN)
