After two decades of parenting and talking with new parents, Karen Bemmes realized there was so much that she knows now that she wishes she had known as a new parent, and there are so many new parents now that could benefit from that knowledge. That is how 101 Parenting Tips, Tricks and Bits of Wisdom was born. It gives new parents answers to questions they may not have even thought of and tricks to make them feel like a veteran parent even if they're a newbie.
Through a global, multidisciplinary perspective, this book describes how four factors influence parenting practices: a countries historical and political background, the parent's educational history, the economy and the parent's financial standing, and advances in technology. Case studies that illustrate the impact these four factors have on parents in various regions help us better understand parenting in today's global, interconnected world. Descriptions of parenting practices in countries from Europe, North and South America, Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean give readers a contemporary perspective. Both research and clinical implications when working with families from various cultures are integrated throughout.
