Many sociological, historical and cultural stories can be and have already been told about why it is that parents in post-industrial, western societies face an often overwhelming array of advice on how to bring up their children. At the same time, there have been several philosophical treatments of the legal, moral and political issues surrounding issues of procreation, the rights of children and the duties of parents, as well as some philosophical accounts of the shifts in our underlying conceptualization of childhood and adult-child relationships. While this book partly builds on the insights of this literature, it is significantly different in that it offers a philosophically-informed discussion of the actual practical experience of being a parent, with its deliberations, judgements and dilemmas. In probing the ethical and conceptual questions suggested by the parent-child relationship, this unique volume demonstrates the irreducible philosophical richness of this relationship and thus provides an important counter-balance to the overly empirical and largely psychological focus of a great deal of “parenting” literature. Unlike other analytic work on the parent-child relationship and the educational role of parents, this work draws on first-person accounts of the day-to-day experience of being a parent in order to explore the ethical and epistemological aspects of this experience. In so doing it exposes the limitations of some of the languages within which contemporary “parenting” is conceptualized and discussed, and opens up a space for thinking about childrearing and the parent-child relationship beyond and other than in terms of the languages which dominate the ways in which we generally think about it today.

Children and parents have become a focus of debates on ‘new social risks’ in European welfare states. Policymaking elites have converged in defining such risks, and they have outlined new forms of parenting support to better safeguard children and activate their potential. Increasingly, parents are suspected of falling short of public expectations. Contributors to this special issue scrutinize this shift towards parenting as performance and analyse recent forms of parenting support.

Als Pamela Druckerman der Liebe wegen nach Paris zieht und bald darauf ein Kind bekommt, entdeckt sie schnell, dass französische Eltern offensichtlich einiges anders machen – und zwar besser. In diesem unterhaltsamen Erfahrungsbericht lüftet sie die Geheimnisse der Erziehung à la française.

Eltern sind auch nur Menschen. Und was macht man mit einem Sohn, der nicht mehr in die Schule gehen möchte? David, der Vater, schlägt Jesse einen ungewöhnlichen Handel vor: freie Kost und Logis, aber drei Filme pro Woche. Von Truffaut über Hitchcock bis hin zu ›Basic Instinct‹. Nachmittage und Abende gemeinsam auf dem Sofa. Kein Kurs in Filmgeschichte, sondern viel Zeit zum Reden über falsche Freundinnen, die richtigen Drogen, verlorene und gefundene Liebe. Und darüber, wie lebenswichtig Leidenschaft ist. Ein wahres und weises, zärtliches und urkomisches Buch über gebrochene Herzen im Film und im wirklichen Leben und darüber, dass Erwachsenwerden nichts mit dem Alter zu tun hat.
