Parenting is perhaps the hardest yet most rewarding job one can have. Never has this been more acutely true than in the modern age, as parents navigate a barrage of competing— and often conflicting—advice from experts, while weeding through a literal Web of digital resources and pitfalls at their fingertips, and trying to preserve their own wellbeing in the process.
Parenting: Styles & Strategies explores a range of topics for those wishing to supplement their own knowledge and experiences in the role of Parent. With carefully researched content written in easy-to-understand language, this guide is meant to provide insight on key topics of concern for all parents in today’s world.
This new volume begins with a comprehensive introduction written by volume editor Paul Moglia that clarifies the scope of the volume in relation to the vast sea of parenting advice available in print and online. This is followed by nearly 100 entries written by experts in the fields of academia and healthcare.
Topics include conditions such as:

Parenting: Styles & Strategies is designed to help parents and prospective parents better prepare for the issues they will face as they raise their children: how to identify various issues and behaviors; how to put solutions and best-practices into place; and how to reward positive behavior, all with the goal of raising happy and productive kids.
