Item Description...
Doing Right by Children begins with an examination of the concept of childhood and how this concept has changed over the centuries. Once treated as a form of property were created out of a family's need for labor, by 1950, American parents had come to think of themselves as stewards looking out for the best interests of their children. In the 1960s, though, the status of children began to decline, as parents grew increasingly reluctant to put the interests of their children ahead of their own desires. Doing Right by Children investigates various ethical issues regarding the parent/child relationship. Among the questions it attempts to answer are these: What kind of upbringing do parents owe their children? What are the proper goals of parenting? How would we structure families if our primary interest were the well-being of children? Doing Right by Children offers a spirited defense of the stewardship model of parenting. It challenges the now-commonplace view that the freedom of parents-to pursue, for example career or sexual fulfillment-should not be sacrificed to the interests of their children.>

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Doing Right By Children by William B. Irvine  May 22, 2001
Take a look at the astonishing abuses children have been subjected to throughout the ages. Mr. Irvine exposes the cruelties children have incurred from the 1700's to modern day. Chimney sweeps and coal mine "donkeys", child movie stars and gymnists; European, Asian, American degradations. He suggests that parenthood needs to be examined more closely. Only persons who are committed to making personal sacrifices should consider parenthood. This is a must-read book recommended by The Informed Parent web site. Carol Samson, Book Review Editor
