The Rise and Fall of Modern American Childhood in the Twentieth Century.
Issues in Education, v2 n3 p221-27 Win 1984
Three factors central to the development of modern attitudes toward childhood are awareness that children and adults differ, the definition of women's primary role as maternal, and the increasingly complex demands made on adults. The combined pressures of feminism and the accessibility of broadcast media are changing these factors significantly. (PGD)
