This book was about what the author thinks is a new phenomenon of over protective parenting and being over involved in kids lives And how this is creating unhappy impatient brittle children who will not be very good future leaders It spent a lot of time on how some parents have their kids lives all planned out for them with their eye to beefing up their college resumes It was funny at times when the author gave anecdotes about crazy parents attending job interviews with their 18 yr olds It also pointed out that cases of child stranger abduction and molestation etc are actually down now and likely a concern from someone close to the child the majority of abductions being by a separated parent etc yet due the culture of fear we re still scaring kids about all the bad things that can happen and not letting them play outside It was a good reminder to back off And of the dangers of perfectionism

A Nation of Wimps: The High Cost of Invasive Parenting Free download × 5 Hara Estroff Marano ð 5 review Free read Õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ð Hara Estroff Marano Reakable instead of strong and resilient This crisis threatens to destroy the fabric of our society to undermine both our democracy and economy Without future leaders or daring innovators where will we go So what can be donekids would play in the street until their mothers hailed them for supper and unless a child was called into the principals office parents and teachers met only at organized conferences Nowadays parents are involved in every aspect of their childrens liveseven going so far as using technology to monitor what their kid. I was not impressed with this book It was sensationalistic poorly referenced and make very sweeping claims that dismissed whole schools of thought that certainly have some validity to them I m going to betray my biases here but she dismissed attachment parenting in about a paragraph and did the same to homeschooling basically making both sound like only the most obsessed parents would consider doing either of those things even though they are so detrimental for their children She did have some good points I suppose so this may be worth reading for parents as a cautionary tale for how not to ruin your children But I think she doesn t think through all the issues clearly enough
