A clinical psychologist with 19 years of experience working with kids from all walks of life-from deeply troubled children mired in LA's child welfare system to the privileged scions of the Beverly Hills elite-Dr. Dolin delivers a practical, compassionate guide for parents that will help children thrive through their most difficult passages. For it is when our children are at their worst-depressed, anxious, defiant, angry or fearful-that we are called upon to do our best. More than just a guide to mindful parenting, "Privilege of Parenting" provides a veritable toolkit for parents dealing with problem behaviors ranging from everyday sadness and fears to severe clinical issues. In every case, Dr. Dolin frames each behavior, discusses causes and contributing factors, and then distills the essence of what helps. He illustrates his advice with extraordinary-and moving-anecdotes of the children and families with whom he has worked. This is a book that is inspiring, instructive and a pleasure to read. Dr. Dolin's approach represents a kind of "yoga of parenting." Not surprisingly, yoga is among Dr. Dolin's various prescriptions. All parents love their children. "Privilege of Parenting" will help readers transform the abiding love they have for their children into compassionate, insightful and consistent parenting. Privilege of Parenting is a psychological guide that helps parents build-and repair-nourishing and empathic relationships with their children. "Privilege of Parenting" equips parents with deeper insights into the fears and blind-spots that hinder us as parents and gives guidelines, approaches and strategies for getting it right with our kids as well as tools for personal growth in the service of better parenting. "Privilege of Parenting" is not only a "how-to" but ultimately a "why to" book that likens parenting to yoga and helps the reader realize that in parenting as their best Self, they are inherently following an often overlooked path to potential happiness, wellness and spirit.

In Parenting Empires, Ana Y. Ramos-Zayas focuses on the parenting practices of Latin American urban elites to analyze how everyday experiences of whiteness, privilege, and inequality reinforce national and hemispheric idioms of anti-corruption and austerity. Ramos-Zayas shows that for upper-class residents in the affluent neighborhoods of Ipanema (Rio de Janeiro) and El Condado (San Juan), parenting is particularly effective in providing moral grounding for neoliberal projects that disadvantage the overwhelmingly poor and racialized people who care for and teach their children. Wealthy parents in Ipanema and El Condado cultivate a liberal cosmopolitanism by living in multicultural city neighborhoods rather than gated suburban communities. Yet as Ramos-Zayas reveals, their parenting strategies, which stress spirituality, empathy, and equality, allow them to preserve and reproduce their white privilege. Defining this moral economy as “parenting empires,” she sheds light on how child-rearing practices permit urban elites in the Global South to sustain and profit from entrenched social and racial hierarchies.

Americans like to believe that theirs is the land of opportunity, but the hard facts are that children born into poor families in the United States tend to stay poor and children born into wealthy families generally stay rich. Other countries have shown more success at lessening the effects of inequality on mobility—possibly by making public investments in education, health, and family well-being that offset the private advantages of the wealthy. What can the United States learn from these other countries about how to provide children from disadvantaged backgrounds an equal chance in life? Making comparisons across ten countries, Persistence, Privilege, and Parenting brings together a team of eminent international scholars to examine why advantage and disadvantage persist across generations. The book sheds light on how the social and economic mobility of children differs within and across countries and the impact private family resources, public policies, and social institutions may have on mobility. In what ways do parents pass advantage or disadvantage on to their children? Persistence, Privilege, and Parenting is an expansive exploration of the relationship between parental socioeconomic status and background and the outcomes of their grown children. The authors also address the impact of education and parental financial assistance on mobility. Contributors Miles Corak, Lori Curtis, and Shelley Phipps look at how family economic background influences the outcomes of adult children in the United States and Canada. They find that, despite many cultural similarities between the two countries, Canada has three times the rate of intergenerational mobility as the United States—possibly because Canada makes more public investments in its labor market, health care, and family programs. Jo Blanden and her colleagues explore a number of factors affecting how advantage is transmitted between parents and children in the United States and the United Kingdom, including education, occupation, marriage, and health. They find that despite the two nations having similar rates of intergenerational mobility and social inequality, lack of educational opportunity plays a greater role in limiting U.S. mobility, while the United Kingdom’s deeply rooted social class structure makes it difficult for the disadvantaged to transcend their circumstances. Jane Waldfogel and Elizabeth Washbrook examine cognitive and behavioral school readiness across income groups and find that pre-school age children in both the United States and Britain show substantial income-related gaps in school readiness—driven in part by poorly developed parenting skills among overburdened, low-income families. The authors suggest that the most encouraging policies focus on both school and home interventions, including such measures as increases in federal funding for Head Start programs in the United States, raising pre-school staff qualifications in Britain, and parenting programs in both countries. A significant step forward in the study of intergenerational mobility, Persistence, Privilege, and Parenting demonstrates that the transmission of advantage or disadvantage from one generation to the next varies widely from country to country. This striking finding is a particular cause for concern in the United States, where the persistence of disadvantage remains stubbornly high. But, it provides a reason to hope that by better understanding mobility across the generations abroad, we can find ways to do better at home.

Distinguishing Disability

Students in special education programs can have widely divergent experiences. For some, special education amounts to a dumping ground where schools unload their problem students, while for others, it provides access to services and accommodations that drastically improve chances of succeeding in school and beyond. Distinguishing Disability argues that this inequity in treatment is directly linked to the disparity in resources possessed by the students’ parents. Since the mid-1970s, federal law has empowered parents of public school children to intervene in virtually every aspect of the decision making involved in special education. However, Colin Ong-Dean reveals that this power is generally available only to those parents with the money, educational background, and confidence needed to make effective claims about their children’s disabilities and related needs. Ong-Dean documents this class divide by examining a wealth of evidence, including historic rates of learning disability diagnosis, court decisions, and advice literature for parents of disabled children. In an era of expanding special education enrollment, Distinguishing Disability is a timely analysis of the way this expansion has created new kinds of inequality.

Don’t chase mammon and allow demons to chase your children. Parenting For far too long, Christians have taken the divine commission of parenting for granted. They do not realize that leaving a godly legacy for their children is the most important investment they can make in their lifetime. The time has come for the people of God to rise up, take responsibility, and obey the divine command of bringing their children before the Lord. Are you ready to train your children in a godly manner that will bring joy and success to your family? Then this book is for you. In this book, Pastor Jones Boakye unveils the secrets, concepts, and strategies of parenting using biblical insights and real-life examples to teach parents the true Christian way of handling children and teenagers. As you journey through the pages in this book, ruminate on the assertion below: “Most parents don’t understand teenagers, churches don’t know the difference between the teenager and the youth, and the nation is totally confused about the placement of teens in the society.”

How can teachers bridge the gap between their commitments to social justice and their day to day practice? This is the question author Adam Howard asked as he began teaching at an elite private school and the question that led him to conduct a six-year study on affluent schooling. Unfamiliar with the educational landscape of privilege and abundance, he began exploring the burning questions he had as a teacher on the lessons affluent students are taught in schooling about their place in the world, their relationships with others, and who they are. Grounded in an extensive ethnographic account, Learning Privilege examines the concept of privilege itself and the cultural and social processes in schooling that reinforce and regenerate privilege. Howard explores what educators, students and families at elite schools value most in education and how these values guide ways of knowing and doing that both create high standards for their educational programs and reinforce privilege as a collective identity. This book illustrates the ways that affluent students construct their own privilege, not, fundamentally, as what they have, but, rather, as who they are.
