Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Over half of all births to young adults in the United States now occur outside of marriage. A large proportion are unplanned. These facts suggest that today's young adults are drifting into relationships and are often unprepared for parenthood. What kind of future does this mean for their kids and for society as a whole? In Generation Unbound, Isabel V. Sawhill discusses likely causes for recent changes in the family, such as an increase in women's economic opportunities, the declining economic prospects of men, greater access to birth control and abortion, and new social norms that allow young people more choice - but provide less guidance on what it means to be an adult. Isabel V. Sawhill reveals an emerging class divide in patterns of marriage and childbearing: at the top of the ladder are "planners," who are marrying and having children only after establishing a career; at the bottom, and increasingly in the middle, are "drifters" who are having unplanned children early, outside of marriage, and without the stable support of a second parent. This divide is contributing to rising inequality and less social mobility in the U.S. Isabel V.Sawhill sees merit in the views of those on the political left, who argue for more social supports for the less advantaged, including more educational opportunities, expanded child care, parental leave, family-friendly workplaces, and financial assistance. She also agrees with those on the right who argue for traditional marriage as the best environment for raising children. But, she argues that public policies aimed at restoring marriage have not worked and that existing social supports cannot keep pace with an ongoing tide of childbearing outside of marriage. Instead, she points to a third way: greater personal responsibility among potential parents themselves. Drawing on new insights from behavioral economics, and the promise of new long-acting contraceptives, she suggests a future in which more children will be born to adults who want and are prepared to be parents. Contents: An Introduction; Changes in the Family: More Diversity, a Bigger Why We Should Worry: The Consequences of Choices about Marriage and Childbe A Growing Class Divide: Planners vs. Drifters; The Traditionalists vs. the Villagers: Why Government Alone Can't Solve the Marriage Problem; Making Better Decisions: The Need to Change the Defau< and Peering into the Future: Less Marriage, Fewer Children?.

Buchbeschreibung BROOKINGS INSTITUTION, United States, 2014. Hardback. Buchzustand: New. 229 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Half of all pregnancies in the United States are either unplanned or unintended. Moreover, while fewer people are getting married, childbearing outside of wedlock is on the rise. These trends suggest that couples who have unplanned children are ambivalent or unenthusiastic about becoming parents, or, at the very least, are unprepared for parenthood. What kind of future does this mean for their kids .and for society as a whole? In Generation Unbound , nationally known budget expert Isabel V. Sawhill presents likely causes for the recent changes in the traditional family structure, such as the increase in women s economic opportunities, declining economic prospects of men, access to birth control and abortion, and new social norms that allow young people more choices - but provide less guidance on what it means to be an adult.

But, she also points out that while collective responses are needed, they alone can t solve the problem. Any such efforts must be combined with the exercise of greater personal responsibility by potential parents themselves. Buchnummer des Verkäufers AAS9780815725589
