Product Description

Tyrannized by "experts." Obsessed with perfection. Harried and anxious to the point of misery. Columnist, commentator and mother of four, Betsey Hart sees these traits in what she calls today's "parenting culture"-that is, a nation of parents who put their kids on a pedestal, shy away from discipline, and generally cede the responsibility for making decisions, large and small, to their children. Here is her provocative argument for the crucial and currently unfashionable role of parents who lead rather than follow. This insightful, commonsense book will help shift the focus back to the role and responsibilities of parents-for guiding the character and hearts of their children, so they will grow up to be responsible adults themselves.
