About this book

This book examines parenting in an unequal society and questions whether it is a key mechanism through which poverty translates into underachievement and reduced life chances in children.

Reviews

"This is a powerful, persuasive and extremely important book. Dimitra Hartas forensically demolishes core presumptions underpinning contemporary parenting policy through a trenchant and compelling analysis of the evidence. This myth busting, ground-breaking, text should be compulsory reading for politicians, policy makers and family practitioners." - Professor Val Gillies, London South Bank University, UK
