The Collapse of Parenting: How We Hurt Our Kids When We Treat Them Like Grown-

Product Details

Synopsis
An acclaimed expert on parenting and childhood development argues that kids today are suffering because their parents are no longer in charge and explains what parents and educators can do to reverse this trend” In “The Collapse of Parenting,” physician, psychologist, and internationally acclaimed author Leonard Sax presents data documenting a dramatic decline in the achievement and psychological health of American children. Sax argues that rising levels of obesity, depression, and anxiety among young people as well as the explosion in prescribing psychiatric medications to kids can all be traced to parents letting their kids call the shots. Many parents are afraid of seeming too dictatorial and end up abdicating their authority rather than taking a stand with their own children. If kids refuse to eat anything green and demand pizza instead, some parents give in, inadvertently raising children who are more likely to become obese. If children are given smartphones and allowed to spend the bulk of their free time texting, playing video games, and surfing the Internet, they become increasingly reliant on peers and the media for guidance on how to live, rather than getting such guidance at home. And if they won t sit still in class or listen to adults, they re often prescribed medication, a quick fix that actually undermines their self-control. In short, Sax argues, parents are failing to prioritize the parent-child relationship and are allowing a child-peer dynamic to take precedence. The result is children who have no absolute standard of right and wrong, who lack discipline, and who look to their peers and the Internet for direction, instead of looking to their parents. But there is hope. Sax shows how parents can help their kids by reasserting their authorityby limiting time with screens, by encouraging better habits at the dinner table and at bedtime, and by teaching humility and perspective. Drawing on more than twenty-five years of experience as a family physician and psychologist, along with hundreds of interviews with children, parents, and teachers across the United States and around the world, Sax offers a blueprint parents can use to refresh and renew their relationships with their children to help their children thrive in an increasingly complicated world.”

Reviews
A New York Times Bestseller Chicago Tribune “Sax’s book isn”t available for purchase until late December, but if his message strikes a chord, it may be worth a preorder…. [Sax is] sounding some alarms that we’d do well to heed, and for our kids’ sakes, I think sooner is better than later.” New York Journal of Books “If you’re going to read one book on parenting this year, make it The Collapse of Parenting by Leonard Sax. What makes a good nonfiction instructional book is an author who has extensive real world experience in the subject matter and who has the ability to write clearly. Leonard Sax has both…. This is quite simply a good book that is easily read and will provide sound advice for giving our children the best chance to succeed in life.” Kirkus “A comprehensive breakdown of where parents have gone awry and how they can get back on track to teach virtue and character to their children…. Sax provides a series of easy-to-follow solutions that help bring parents and children back to the same page, working toward a healthier, more respectful, and conscientious attitude…. With the author”s solid advice, parents have a good shot at achieving these goals.” Booklist “[Sax’s] guidelines are clear and well-supported.” Treehugger.com ” The Collapse of Parenting may sound like a lone voice in the world of American parenting these days, but it’s a desperately needed one…If you’re going to read a single parenting book this year, please make it this one.” Meg Meeker, M.D.nationally best-selling author of Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters and Strong Mothers, Strong Sons “One of the premier experts on parenting, Dr. Leonard Sax brilliantly articulates the problems parents experience with their children, then gives solutions. The Collapse of Parenting is academic but practical, simple but deep. If you have time to read only one book this year, read this one .” Dr. Bill Bennett “The family unit is in unprecedented decline and under assault from a wide variety of cultural forces. With years of experience and research working directly with parents and children, Dr. Leonard Sax provides an important glimpse into parenting in modern times, where it’s gone wrong, and how to fix it. Being a parent has never been more important and Dr. Sax explains how to avoid parenting pitfalls and raise your children well.” Dr. Nancy Kehoe, author of Wrestling with Our Inner Angels: Faith, Mental Illness and the Journey to Wholeness “Dr. Leonard Sax’s The Collapse of Parenting should be required reading for all parents when they enroll their child in preschool. Based on years of extensive clinical practice and interviews with students and parents internationally, Sax presents a sobering and alarming picture of the collapse of parenting in this country. But he does not leave the reader without hope; he offers simple, if not easy solutions, giving parents an accessible guide to help them regain their rightful roles.” Dr. Timothy Wright, Headmaster at Shore School Sydney “It is time for us to get real as a society. Dr. Leonard Sax has issued both a warning and an encouragement for parents to take up their proper roles in leading their children to a truly mature adulthood. His book is a highly readable and well-informed challenge for us.” Andrew Hunter, Headmaster of Merchiston Castle School “There are many ”holy’ trinities, but in educational terms, one of them is definitely the relationship between parents, children, and schools. I certainly will be recommending this book to the parents of my school.
