“We may be the most child-sensitive generation of parents the world has ever known—and the most confused and insecure.” But it doesn't have to be that way. We can be both sensitive and in charge. We don't have to model our family on the consumer society where our kids become “consumers of parental services” and we become the “servers” with customers who are always right. Dr. William Doherty is convinced that it is possible to be a thoroughly modern parent - who values each child's sensitivities and developmental needs - while still having high expectations for children as persons who have responsibilities to family and community. He shows you how in Take Back Your Kids a timely, yet timeless, confidence-building book that backs up fresh insights with personal experience and advice parents can rely on.
