​Parents Under Pressure
​Available March, 2019
HOW DO FAMILIES grapple with disability, mental health, poverty, racism or opioid addiction? How well does America’s infrastructure of care meet their needs? Parenting Under Pressure: The Struggles 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, Parenting Under Pressure ​offers a panoramic view of where we are today, how we got here and how we might do better.
