520    Thousands of books have examined the effects of parents on
       their children. In asking, what are the effects of 
       children on their parents, the author analyzes the many 
       ways in which children reshape their parents' lives, 
       whether it's their marriages, their jobs, their habits, 
       their hobbies, their friendships, or their internal senses
       of self. She argues that changes in the last half century 
       have radically altered the roles of today's mothers and 
       fathers, making their mandates at once more complex and 
       far less clear. Recruiting from a wide variety of sources,
       she dissects both the timeless strains of parenting and 
       the ones that are brand new, and then brings her research 
       to life in the homes of ordinary parents around the 
       country. The result is an unforgettable series of family 
       portraits, starting with parents of young children and 
       progressing to parents of teens. She follows these mothers
       and fathers as they wrestle with some of parenthood's 
       deepest vexations and luxuriate in some of its finest 
       rewards. Here she makes us reconsider some of our 
       culture's most basic beliefs about parenthood, all while 
       illuminating the profound ways children deepen and add 
       purpose to our lives. By focusing on parentHOOD, rather 
       than parentING, the book is original and essential reading
       for mothers and fathers of today, and tomorrow. -- From 
       publisher description. 
520    Drawing on a vast array of sources in history, sociology, 
       economics, psychology, philosophy, and anthropology, a 
       journalist challenges basic beliefs about parenthood while
       revealing the profound ways children deepen and add 
       purpose to life.
