for Contemporary Parenting and Parenthood: Samantha Bowen, Director, Early Childhood and Parenting Education Programs, Walla Walla Community College

“Michelle Janning has edited a must-have collection that offers research-based perspectives for parents overwhelmed with ‘how-to’ books and images of perfection on social media. The expertly-written chapters are relevant, timely, and informative; they offer variety at the same time they collectively navigate common concerns related to helicopter parenting, technology, mental health, public policy, and social inequalities. This book is an important resource for parent educators and for those whose courses focus on parenting, early childhood, and the relationship between the child, family, and community. “
