Duct Tape Parenting gives parents a new perspective on what it means to be effective, engaged parents and to enable kids to develop confidence through solving their own problems. Once developed, these skills let kids take charge, and let parents step back, to the benefit of all.
This is not a book about the parenting strategy of the day, but rather a relationship-based guide to span all ages and stages of development. Casting aside hover mothers and helicopter parents, Vicki Hoefle encourages a different, counter-intuitive-yet much more effective-approach: for parents to sit on their hands, stay on the sidelines, even if duct tape is required, so that the kids step up.
