A host of misconceptions about single parenting are explored in this volume. Topics examined include the interface between the family and the external environment, transitional stages in the life of the family and support from the extended family. Attention is also paid to special categories of families: families of ethnic minorities, father-headed families, adolescent parents and non-custodial parenting.
