Six Stages of Parenthood by Ellen Galinsky
Book DescriptionAlmost all books for parents focus on the way children develop. Ellen Galinsky, instead, writes about how parents develop. Drawing on the work in adult development of Erik Erikson and Daniel Levinson, she describes six distinct stages in the life of a parent: the image-making that occurs during pregnancy; the nurturing role that swallows parents up from birth through the first couple of years; the authority parents must develop as small children show independence; the interpretive stage when parents explain the world and their values to school-age children; the interdependent stage when teenagers challenge authority; and the departure years when parents let go and take stock of their accomplishments and failures.

There is an enormous gap between what researchers have discovered in early childhood development and what parents have been told about those discoveries. This title bridges this gap, showing parents not only what children are capable of, but specifically how to develop those capabilities in their children from birth up until age eight.
