John and Elizabeth Newson's long-term investigation of child up-bringing attracted intense interest from its earliest beginnings: 'pathbreaking' and 'seminal' were adjectives that greeted their first report.

The study is now established as one of the major projects of the seventies.

This third volume of the series catches some 700 Nottingham children at a critical stage of their development: in transition from infant to junior school, they are moving out of the protective family orbit and into the wider social world of street, playground and classroom, where cultural pressures make themselves felt in ever more demanding ways.

Like the Newson's earlier books, this study has a strong ecological flavour in the sense that what children do, what parents do, and how they feel about what they do, are all set firmly into the broader context of life as it is lived in contemporary urban society.
