The Parent Track provides an in-depth understanding of parenting in academia, from diverse perspectives—gender, age, race/ethnicity, marital status, sexual orientation—and at different phases of a parent’s academic career. This collection not only arrives at a comprehensive understanding of parenthood and academia; it reveals the shifting ideologies surrounding the challenges of negotiating work and family balance in this context. Earlier research on parenting has documented the ways in which women and men experience, and subsequently negotiate, their roles as parents in the context of the workplace and the home. Particular attention has been paid to the negotiation of familial and childcare responsibilities, the division of labour, the availability of family-friendly policies, social constructions of motherhood and fatherhood, power relations, and gender roles and inequality. Studies on the experience of parenthood within the context of academia, however, have lacked diversity and failed to provide qualitative accounts from scholars of all genders at varying points in their academic careers who have, or are planning to have, children. This book addresses that gap.
A compassionate guide to child-rearing, Children Of Fast-Track Parents is also a fascinating portrait of what is influencing the behavior and personality development of today's children and tomorrow's leaders.
It's time for your young adult to go out and land that very first part-time job. Telling them to smile, be polite and wear nice clothes is all good advice-- if they even get to the interview stage of the hiring process. The hard reality is that most of them won't get that far...and they'll never know why. In his book, The Job Talk, author and multi-small business owner Darrell Doepke shares with you the process of recruiting and hiring new employees from a small business owner's perspective, so that you can better understand how and why hiring decisions are made, and how a first-timer like your teenaged son or daughter can gain an advantage. Doepke uses real-world true stories to explain the process of elimination that happens long before your teen ever gets to a face-to-face interview with a decision maker. He teaches in great detail what to expect during the application and interview process-- and how to prepare for it. It's a weeding-out process, and your young adult needs to know how to survive it!
