9780060933791: Stupid Things Parents Do To Mess Up Their Kids: Don't Have Them If You Won't Raise Them

Following her previous New York Times bestsellers, Dr.Laura Schlessinger, the conscience of talk radio, now addresses an issue near and dear to her heart: the stupid things parents do to mess up their children. Never one to shy away from tough truths, Dr. Laura marshals compelling evidence for the widespread neglect of America's children and convincingly condemns the numerous rationalizations to excuse it. These are just a few of her hard-hitting points:

  • Don't Have Them If You Won't Raise Them: "The cavalier manner in which our society treats child care, not as a matter of intimacy and love, but as a matter of convenience and economics, is deeply destructive to our children's sense of attachment, identity, and importance."
  • Dads Need Not Apply: "Single motherhood may be more acceptable to society, but it is not acceptable to children; nor is it in their best interest."
  • Brave New Baby: "In our society, reproductive freedom means anyone can decide to create a life by any means with no, and I mean no, consideration of what is in the best interest of that new human being."
  • Spare the Rod: "Children without discipline often become adults with tempertantrums, defiance, rage, depression, anxiety, poor school and work adjustment, drug and alcohol abuse."
Stupid Things Parents Do to Mess Up Their Kids covers all aspects of parenting and also tackles such cultural and societal concerns as abortion, modern sexuality, drug and alcohol use, violence, discipline, and a child's right to privacy.

BRAND NEW, Stupid Things Parents Do to Mess Up Their Kids, Laura Schlessinger, As host of a radio show heard by 18 million Americans each day, Dr Laura Schlessinger is known for her straight-shooting, plain-spoken style. In STUPID THINGS PARENTS DO TO MESS UP THEIR KIDS, she takes on her favourite subject: selfish, irresponsible parenting. Society has lowered its expectations of parents, families and children, she writes - and it's high time for mums and dads to teach their kids right from wrong, and live up to the lifelong responsibility to rear their children.
