Class does make a difference in the lives and futures of American children. Drawing on in-depth observations of black and white middle-class, working-class, and poor families, Unequal Childhoods explores this fact, offering a picture of childhood today. Here are the frenetic families managing their children's hectic schedules of "leisure" activities; and here are families with plenty of time but little economic security. Lareau shows how middle-class parents, whether black or white, engage in a process of "concerted cultivation" designed to draw out children's talents and skills, while working-class and poor families rely on "the accomplishment of natural growth," in which a child's development unfolds spontaneously—as long as basic comfort, food, and shelter are provided. Each of these approaches to childrearing brings its own benefits and its own drawbacks. In identifying and analyzing differences between the two, Lareau demonstrates the power, and limits, of social class in shaping the lives of America's children. The first edition of Unequal Childhoods was an instant classic, portraying in riveting detail the unexpected ways in which social class influences parenting in white and African-American families. A decade later, Annette Lareau has revisited the same families and interviewed the original subjects to examine the impact of social class in the transition to adulthood.

Using nationally representative data from Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class (ECLS-K), this study provides a comprehensive and quantitative examination of Lareau's (Lareau, Annette, 2003. Unequal Childhoods: Class, Race, and Family Life.) theory of concerted cultivation and its influences on child development in elementary school. Building upon the cultural and social capital theories and Lareau's conceptions of concerted cultivation, this dissertation contributes to the social stratification studies of intergenerational transmission of advantages or disadvantages and fills the gaps in the empirical evidence for the causal mechanisms of concerted cultivation. First, I examine the causal effects of concerted cultivation on student academic and behavioral outcomes, accounting for the issues of omitted variable bias and reverse causation using cross-lagged panel models with fixed and random effects. Second, as previous research has highlighted the potential drawbacks of intensive parenting on child development, I examine whether intensive and hectic concerted cultivation has negative consequences through analyzing the nonlinear relationship between concerted cultivation and student outcomes. I further investigate racial and class differential patterns of nonlinear relationships. Third, given the school contextual influences, I investigate how the effects of concerted cultivation vary by school-level concerted cultivation by employing a school organizational-based multilevel modeling approach. Overall, this dissertation carries out important policy implications for examining how educational inequalities are produced and reinforced through parental practices in early life course. The results shed lights on education policies that how to effectively promote parental involvement as a lever for raising academic performance and preventing deviant behaviors.
