"I recommend this text for undergraduate or graduate courses focused on parenting. Using a cohesive framework tied to different domains in which parent-child interactions occur, the book has the advantage of taking a holistic perspective that links many diverse theories and empirical findings. Grusec promotes understanding of how parents' behavior; the emotional climate of the parent-child relationship; and characteristics of parents, children, and contexts ultimately shape children's development. Concrete examples are used throughout, with attention to both how and why parenting is related to children's values, emotions, and behaviors."--Jennifer E. Lansford, PhD, Sanford School of Public Policy, Duke University

"An outstanding book from an internationally known scholar of social and emotional development. Grusec has been a trailblazer for decades, both in forging new conceptualizations of parenting and in identifying important trends in the field. This book succinctly synthesizes a vast amount of research on parenting from Grusec's influential domains-of-socialization perspective. It is a 'must read' for anyone interested in parental socialization and the internalization of values."--Judith G. Smetana, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Rochester

"Grusec not only summarizes major theoretical issues and breakthroughs, but also includes personal stories from research participants and examples of parent-child interactions. This is an important text that can provide a fresh, interesting, empirically grounded perspective for a course on parenting. Professionals working in the field of parent education and counseling will find the book useful in providing direction to their intervention strategies."--Eric Lindsey, PhD, Applied Psychology Program, Penn State Berks

"An in-depth examination of major new theory of parenting by one of the most respected theorists and researchers in the field. This is a text that undoubtedly will be widely cited and highly influential in the way that we think about parents and socialization in the future. I really like the narrative examples that are given to illustrate the effects of parents in each of the domains. I highly recommend this book to anyone who does work on families, parenting, and moral development."--Deborah J. Laible, PhD, Department of Psychology, Lehigh University

"This text will greatly help students and scholars alike. Grusec uses a domain approach to clarify this confusing field we call 'socialization.'"--John C. Gibbs, PhD, Department of Psychology, The Ohio State University
