Fertility rates and population decline : no time for children?( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While much of the world worries about increasing population, this book looks the other way. It highlights the dramatic fall in fertility rates in all regions of the world. Demographers suggest that by 2050 this will lead to population decline. While environmentally this may be welcomed, there may also be negative impacts on our economies: less workers, an increasing number of elderly, and more unwanted childlessness. In this book, key experts untangle the reasons for not having children; international case studies demonstrate that there are similar but also different reasons operating in different areas and psychologists and sociologists explore the possible impact on children, parents and the elderly. Given that fertility trends are not easy to reverse, the book concludes that more needs to be done to maximize the potential of all children; particularly those who have been at the margins of society

Grandfathers : global perspectives by Ann Buchanan( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With changing families, more divorce, more lone parents, as well more healthy and active elders, grandfathers have come out of the shadows and reinvented themselves into a new caring, nurturing role. This is the first book to bring together international scholars from around the world, and from many disciplines, to discover what is known about grandfathers and what the impact is of involvement with grandchildren, on their own, and on their grandchildren's well-being. Original studies demonstrated that grandfather involvement is associated with child well-being in the UK and South Africa, the well-being of Arab and Israeli teenagers, as well as pre-school children in England, which is independent and different from grandmother involvement. This involvement has also been associated with grandfather well-being as long as the involvement is not intensive. This collection concludes that societies could benefit from encouraging more grandfathers to become involved and argues the case for grandparent visitation rights in those countries that currently do not have them
