  • A concern with parenting...must direct attention beyond behavior. This is because parenting is not simply a set of behaviors, but participation in an interpersonal, diffuse, affective relationship. Parenting is an eminently psychological role in a way that many other roles and activities are not.
    Nancy Chodorow (20th century). The Reproduction of Mothering: Psychoanalysis and the Sociology of Gender, ch. 2 (1978).
