9780029069356: Greater Expectations: Overcoming the Culture of Indulgence in America's Homes and Schools

Damon argues that as a culture we have come to accept some very dangerous beliefs about child development--beliefs that have given us a generation of poorly educated, apathetic, and amoral children. He urges the reintroduction of intellectual rigor into education and the capitalization of children's native moral virtues to eliminate the shoddy practices that now dominate our schools.
