Parenting School-Aged Children and Adolescents. First Edition.
Beekman, Nancy R.
Research on parenting with particular attention to parental influence on such matters as self-esteem, academic achievement, social support, and parent-child communication is synthesized in this document. Parental concerns are noted and discussed from an historical vantage point and compared with what concerns parents most today. Sources of help for those concerns are presented as well. The monograph provides an annotated bibliography for parents of school-aged children and adolescents. Resources included in the bibliography range from those focusing on the general issues and concerns of parents to specific information on parent-child communication about topics such as acquired immune deficiency syndrome, nuclear war, and sexuality. Resources are also provided on a large number of topics including suicide, self-esteem, latchkey children, child sexual abuse, child management, the parent's role in the child's education, and alcohol and drug abuse. Bibliographic collections and directories appropriate for parents are listed. The foreword states that a particular parental perspective is not espoused, but rather parents are offered a repertoire of current and relevant resources which if used wisely can lead to more informed choices. It is also noted that this monograph offers a window to the many resources available from the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC). (ABL)
