Emergence of a new type of family?

All Things New

release date: May 01, 2021
All Things New
It''s time to break the cycle. Not every family is the perfect model of Catholic family life. Some of us approach parenting still wounded by childhood experiences that were less than ideal. When we start our own families, at best we feel a bit unprepared, and at worst we feel paralyzed with fear that we will repeat our parents'' dysfunctional, abusive behaviors. In All Things New, Erin McCole Cupp draws on her own and others'' experiences to discuss how to develop a joyful family life when our own experience of being parented was damaging. Erin wrote this book for moms and dads who want to parent better than they themselves were parented. Drawing on the Holy Family as the model of family life, and distilling practical lessons from the Two Greatest Commandments and the Beatitudes, All Things New shows readers that, while change isn''t easy, God has given us all the ingredients we need to create a holy, joyful family.

Little Platoons

release date: Mar 09, 2021
Little Platoons
"Middle-class American life is defined by relentless competition among families, waged from elite preschools to youth sports to selective universities. The lengths to which parents will go to give their children a leg up have become notorious: ostentatious birthday parties to wow the neighbors, fistfights on the soccer sidelines over playing time, criminal conspiracies to cheat at college admissions. Such excesses make it easy to say that parents must just calm down and act more reasonably. But this simplistic advice misses the deep social dynamics that draw today''s well-meaning parents into an endless race against other families, says Matt Feeney, a political theorist and an anxious stay-at-home father of three. In Little Platoons, he identifies and explains these powerful forces, and he urges parents to reawaken to families'' unique social role and recognize their singular potential as a source of resistance. Today''s parents, Feeney shows, operate within self-sustaining feedback loops of competitive worry. Their natural vigilance turns into a fixation on worst-case scenarios about their children''s future prospects in an uncertain world. All around them, they see their worried fellow parents adopt an intensive approach to parenting, in which admission to the most prestigious possible college looms as the long-term goal. Fearing their children will be left behind, parents look for advantage wherever they can. They scramble for entry into competitive preschools, sit with their kids through long hours of homework, hit the road every weekend for sports tournaments, and buy phones and tablets marketed as essential to success. In so doing, parents feel no choice but to set aside their own priorities and values; they alter their lives and the inner workings of their homes to suit the needs and whims of schools, sports leagues, social media companies, and college admissions officers. The web of voluntary associations that once made civil society a bulwark of liberty has become, instead, a series of gatekeepers who demand compliance in exchange for small margins of advantage. In the face of all of this, Feeney argues, families are politically invaluable. At its best, the intense solidarity of family life fosters an alternative set of values and sources of meaning. If we remember this, families offer a standpoint from which to critique and to reject our hyper-competitive, zero-sum society and the inhuman, implacable, indifferent systems that shape it. Blending original reporting, penetrating social analysis, and humorous, self-deprecating stories of Feeney''s own struggles to stay calm as a parent amid the absurdities of Bay Area tech-boom, Little Platoons is unexpected and essential reading for anyone raising kids today"--

Parenting for a Digital Future

release date: Jan 01, 2020
Parenting for a Digital Future
"In the decades it takes to bring up a child, parents face challenges that are both helped and hindered by the fact that they are living through a period of unprecedented digital innovation. Drawing on extensive research with diverse parents, this book reveals how digital technologies give personal and political parenting struggles a distinctive character, as parents determine how to forge new territory with little precedent, or support. The book reveals the pincer movement of parenting in late modernity. Parents are both more burdened with responsibilities and charged with respecting the agency of their child-leaving much to negotiate in today''s "democratic" families. The book charts how parents now often enact authority and values through digital technologies-as "screen time," games, or social media become ways of both being together and setting boundaries. The authors show how digital technologies introduce both valued opportunities and new sources of risk. To light their way, parents comb through the hazy memories of their own childhoods and look toward varied imagined futures. This results in deeply diverse parenting in the present, as parents move between embracing, resisting, or balancing the role of technology in their own and their children''s lives. This book moves beyond the panicky headlines to offer a deeply researched exploration of what it means to parent in a period of significant social and technological change. Drawing on qualitative and quantitative research in the United Kingdom, the book offers conclusions and insights relevant to parents, policymakers, educators, and researchers everywhere"--
