In this New York Times bestseller, one of America's premier child psychologists offers a must-read account of the dismal state of parenting today, and a vision for how we can better prepare our children for the challenges of the adult world In The Collapse of Parenting, internationally acclaimed author Leonard Sax argues that rising levels of obesity, depression, and anxiety among young people can be traced to parents abdicating their authority. The result is children who have no standard of right and wrong, who lack discipline, and who look to their peers and the Internet for direction. Sax shows how parents must reassert their authority - by limiting time with screens, by encouraging better habits at the dinner table, and by teaching humility and perspective - to renew their relationships with their children. Drawing on nearly thirty years of experience as a family physician and psychologist, along with hundreds of interviews with children, parents, and teachers, Sax offers a blueprint parents can use to help their children thrive in an increasingly complicated world.

Summary: The Collapse of Parenting: How We Hurt Our Kids When We Treat Them Like Grown Ups by Leonard Sax | NOT ORIGINAL BOOK, includes our BONUS Critics Corner The atmosphere of parenting has changed dramatically in the past three decades mainly due to an idea Sax calls a "transfer of authority" from parents to children. Children have become more concerned with the opinions of their same-age peers rather than those of their parents. Some challenges are unique to America, they include: "the culture of disrespect/the culture of the 'Live for Now'", The heavy use of 'powerful psychiatric' drugs being used on our children, and the overscheduling of our parents that make it hard for parents to do their jobs in raising their children. In The Collapse of Parenting, Sax shows how certain factors of this damaging concept have led the kids and teenagers of today down a road that has left them less resilient, more likely to become depressed or anxious and less physically fit. More importantly he poses solutions to these problematic challenges of parenting.

"Parenting Made Complicated: A One Size Does Not Fit All Look at What Science Really Knows about Early Parenting's Biggest Dilemmas addresses many of the longstanding parenting controversies that new mothers and fathers face. These include topics related to screens, daycare, praise, sleep training, spanking and time-outs. helicopter versus "old school" parenting, and others. Each chapter is devoted to a different parenting controversy and, a synthesis of what is known scientifically about each topic is presented, written in a non-technical and conversational style. Parenting Made Complicated, however, doesn't assume that the "correct" answer for each parenting dilemma is the same for each child and instead provides a roadmap for how the best approach may vary according to a child's temperament or other important factors. Many case vignettes and boxed practical suggestions are provided. Accounts are also given regarding how scientific information on a particular topic is applied and sometimes manipulated toward political aims. The book is written by child psychiatrist Dr. David Rettew, an expert in child temperament who has conducted research in child development and worked clinically with families for over 20 years"--

What configuration of institutions and policies is most conducive to human flourishing? The historical and comparative evidence suggests that the answer is social democratic capitalism - a democratic political system, a capitalist economy, good elementary and secondary schooling, a big welfare state, pro-employment public services, and moderate regulation of product and labor markets. In Social Democratic Capitalism, Lane Kenworthy shows that this system improves living standards for the least well-off, enhances economic security, and boosts equality of opportunity. And it does so without sacrificing other things we want in a good society, from liberty to economic growth to health and happiness. Its chief practitioners have been the Nordic nations. The Nordics have gone farther than other rich democratic countries in coupling a big welfare state with public services that promote high employment and modest product- and labor-market regulations. Many believe this system isn't transferable beyond Scandinavia, but Kenworthy shows that social democratic capitalism and its successes can be replicated in other affluent nations, including the United States. Today, the U.S. lags behind other countries in economic security, opportunity, and shared prosperity. If the U.S. were to expand its existing social programs and add some additional ones, many ordinary Americans would have better lives. Kenworthy argues that, despite formidable political obstacles, the U.S. is likely to move toward social democratic capitalism in coming decades. As a country gets richer, he explains, it becomes more willing to spend more in order to safeguard against risk and enhance fairness. With social democratic capitalism as his blueprint, he lays out a detailed policy agenda that could alleviate many of America's problems.

A parenting expert reveals the four biggest threats to girls' psychological growth and explains how parents can help their daughters develop a healthy sense of self. In Girls on the Edge, psychologist and physician Leonard Sax argues that many girls today have a brittle sense of self-they may look confident and strong on the outside, but they're fragile within. Sax offers the tools we need to help them become independent and confident women, and provides parents with practical tips on everything from helping their daughter limit her time on social media, to choosing a sport, to nurturing her spirit through female-centered activities. Compelling and inspiring, Girls on the Edge points the way to a new future for today's girls and young women.

A revised and updated edition (with more than 70% new material) of the evergreen classic about the innate differences between boys and girls and how best to parent and teach girls and boys successfully, with completely new chapters on sexual orientation and on transgender and intersex kids. Eleven years ago, Why Gender Matters broke ground in illuminating the differences between boys and girls--how they perceive the world differently, how they learn differently, how they process emotions and take risks differently. Dr. Sax argued that in failing to recognize these hardwired differences between boys and girls, we ended up reinforcing damaging stereotypes, medicalizing normal behavior (see: the rising rates of ADHD diagnosis), and failing to support kids to reach their full potential. In the intervening decade, the world has changed drastically, with an avalanche of new research which supports, deepens, and expands Dr. Sax's work. This revised and updated edition includes new findings about how boys and girls interact differently with social media and video games; a completely new discussion of research on gender non-conforming, LGB, and transgender kids, new findings about how girls and boys see differently, hear differently, and even smell differently; and new material about the medicalization of bad behavior.

Why America's sons are underachieving, and what we can do about it. Something is happening to boys today. From kindergarten to college, American boys are, on average, less resilient and less ambitious than they were a mere twenty years ago. The gender gap in college attendance and graduation rates has widened dramatically. While Emily is working hard at school and getting A's, her brother Justin is goofing off. He's more concerned about getting to the next level in his videogame than about finishing his homework. In Boys Adrift, Dr. Leonard Sax delves into the scientific literature and draws on more than twenty years of clinical experience to explain why boys and young men are failing in school and disengaged at home. He shows how social, cultural, and biological factors have created an environment that is literally toxic to boys. He also presents practical solutions, sharing strategies which educators have found effective in re-engaging these boys at school, as well as handy tips for parents about everything from homework, to videogames, to medication.

I am convinced that if a homeschool family is struggling, it is not because of the curriculum or a special need with their child, but usually boils down to one root issue- parents have not taught their children to obey. Obedience needs to be both instant and cheerful. Even the secular author, Dr. Leonard Sax, in his recent book, "The Collapse of Parenting", puts the blame at the feet of parents who refuse to say "No" to their child and insist on obedience. It is a culture-wide problem that needs to be acknowledged and addressed. As a homeschool parent, do you find yourself telling your child to sit down and start working, only to find that you have to repeat it several times? Then you go to find where he is hiding or playing and drag him to the table? Do you eventually give up the struggle and just let him do fewer pages or fewer problems and then go play? Does your child complain that the work is too hard and insist that he wants to use a different, easier curriculum which drives you to keep searching for "the perfect solution"? If God commands children to obey and honor their parents, then this implies that parents must be in charge, giving commands that need to be obeyed. It is also a good reminder that due to their sin nature; children do not want to obey and must be taught submission to authority. That is your number one job, parents - teaching your child to obey. KIDS LIKE TO WORK FOR A REASON THEY LOVE, IT CAN BE A GIFT, A TRAVEL PROMESS, OR ANY OTHER THING MAKES THEM HAPPY. AS MANY ACADEMICS RESEARCHERS SAY, CHALLENGING YOUR KIDS IS THE MAIN WAY TO OBTAIN A GOOD RESULT. THEREFOR, THIS DIARY NOTEBOOK COMES FOR THIS REASON, LET YOUR CHILD TO DECIDE HIMSELF THE FUTURE ROUTE TO TAKE, AND PUSH HIM TO FOLLOW YOUR DIRECTIONS AND ADVICE AUTOMATICALLY AND INTELLIGENTLY.

This booklet reports the findings of a study that focused on the well-being and lifestyle of 479 families of children (ages 2-17) with Down syndrome (DS) in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Iceland. A comparative study of families of typical children in the Nordic countries was also done. The results of the study indicate that bringing up a child with Down syndrome is usually well managed in the Nordic countries. There was little parental discord that resulted in separations and the families have a good socioeconomic standard. The vast majority of the mothers were relatively satisfied with their lifestyles and maintained an optimistic view of their children's futures, this being particularly true for rural mothers. Usually, the mother provided the extra support system for the child's daily activities though adolescence, because the child with disabilities develops the self-regulative capacities necessary for autonomous activity more slowly than a typical child. The mothers' opportunities for alternative activities were fewer than those of mothers of typical children and do not increase at the same rate as the children attain adolescence. While the vast majority of mothers were relatively satisfied with their life-situation, this satisfaction decreased as their child entered adolescence. (Contains 66 references.) (CR).
