Distinguished authors detail cross-cultural issues affecting youngsters, including parenting practices, gender role socialization, risk and resilience in childhood, and more.

Socialization practices within families, communities, and educational settings are included.

This volume, which includes both field-based and experimental research, will appeal to practitioners, scholars, and students in the fields of child psychology, cross-cultural psychology, anthropology, sociology, child and family studies, and social work.
