The various ways that parents shape their children’s development have been a regular source of theorising by scientists, philosophers and, centre stage, by parents themselves. Within the scientifi c perspective, much of the empirical work linking parental behaviour to developmental outcomes in children has been produced by those working in psychology, sociology and criminology. But other disciplines have contributed both theories and methods including historians, anthropologists and biological sciences.
