About this item

Parenting the Crisis draws on original quantitative and qualitative research into the work that parents do in teaching their children in a broad range of areas. It engages with key debates from across the disciplines of sociology, social policy, social psychology, and media and cultural studies to build a timely critique of parenting culture. Tracey Jensen shows how the very concept of concept of “parenting” so often conceals gendered and classed assumptions about parental care and competence. From there, Jensen moves on to trace the ways that public discussions of parenting as in crisis are used to police and discipline families that are considered to be morally suspect, failing, or abnormal.
