An expert on parenting and childhood argues that children are suffering because parents are no longer assuming leadership roles in families. Children today often choose what’s for supper; they choose which social media they will engage; they often choose their bedtime and sometimes even their school.
In “The Collapse of Parenting“, Dr. Leonard Sax, author of “Boys Adrift”, shows how these factors and related influences have led to children and teenagers being less resilient, less physically fit, and more likely to become anxious or depressed – and far more fragile – compared with kids from the same demographic 30 years ago. Fortunately, he also shares recommendations for how caregivers and educators can reverse damaging trends.
