​Available March 25, 2019 (Levellers Press)
HOW DO FAMILIES grapple with disability, mental health, poverty, racism or opioid addiction? How well does America’s infrastructure of care meet their needs? Parents Under Pressure: Struggling to Raise Children in an Unequal America renders unforgettable portraits of six overburdened families. From fractured support systems to well-intentioned but underfunded agencies, the stories lay bare flawed social structures and expectations. Couched in a rich account of how American parenting ideals and public support systems have evolved over time, Parents Under Pressure ​offers a panoramic view of where we are today, how we got here and how we might do better.
