The Generativity Crisis and the "Scold War": What About Those Parents?
McCaslin, Mary; Infanti, Helen
Teachers College Record, v100 n2 p275-96 Win 1998
Suggests that parenting is a societal construction, and that construction includes multiple messages from policymakers, popular media, researchers, and educators that too many parents are either incompetent or unwilling to parent effectively. The paper suggests that Erikson's psychosocial theory of the individual life span can guide consideration of how culture might better conceptualize its responsibilities to parents and their children.
