About this item

The family is an important site for the transmission of knowledge and cultural values. Amidst claims that young people are becoming sedentary, failing to adhere to health and physical activity messages, dropping out of sport and at risk of an ever-expanding list of lifestyle diseases, families have been targeted as crucial sites for government interventions. This book is the first to offer critical sociological perspectives on how families do and do not function as a pedagogical site for health education, sport and physical activity practices. It is essential reading for anybody with an interest in physical education, health studies, family studies, or the sociology of sport and exercise.
