This unique portrayal of “Single-parent” families shown in a positive light explores the development of self from this vantage point. Take a trip down memory lane as Merryl Chopra explores the historical views of “family” and psychology, both of which have contributed to current understanding of the “family” and the perception of self.
Delve into the intimate lives of six women raised in single-parent (mother only) households, and learn about their journeys to form close relationships with men. The development of self for these women is not based on a single experience but a myriad of experiences that shape who they are. There is no single definition of “family”; learn about many varieties which are every bit as valid and relevant.
