From Back cover:-
Over twenty years of thinking about being parents in New Zealand, and raising a family and watching others raise theirs led to this book by two of New Zealands best-known psychologists. The result is an ambitious and wide-ranging survey following on from but going considerably further than Jane and James Ritchies highly successful Child Rearing In New Zealand.

The authors main theme in the book is the strengths and the weaknesses of the way in which New Zealanders make provision for the process of growing up. Judgments on this are based partly on their close familiarity with New Zealand writing and research on child development, partly on their own long term research and work in the field, and partly on their keen observation of children and parents, their communication and their conflicts.

Throughout this book the Ritchies have avoided unnecessary jargon and social science theorising, and have written for ordinary parents - indeed for ordinary people who may not be parents but wonder how we got to be the way we are. But at the same time this is a comprehensive record of what is known about the topic and the book is fully documented for students. It may not contain answers to every question that might be asked but it provides a summary of New Zealand research, as well as a forward looking perspective that gives some guidelines to the future.

This Paperback is in Good condition, Printed 1978, 212 pages, 14cms x 22cms tall.
