Parenting the world over is a task that parents assume automatically on the basis of their experiences starting from their own childhood and/or the things learned from the repertoire of knowledge available from the modern scholarship in the field of parent-child relations. Parenting is not an easy task, nor is it a one-way process from parent to the child. In India the family group is widespread and consists of many types of relatives who contribute to the socialisation process of child upbringing. This book explores the influence of these and other socio-cultural-specific factors and also the new aspects arising from the modernising and "globalising" world in the parenting styles, and how these modify the three major distinctive types of parenting styles, viz., the Authoritarian, the Authoritative and Laissez faire. The book puts forward a case for continual redefinition of parenting styles on account of the newly emerging horizons and insights thereof. Printed Pages: 168.
