From Publishers Weekly:

A psychologist from the Beverly Hills, Calif., school system addresses a unique constituency in this parenting guide, offering advice for "avoiding the pitfalls and challenges frequently encountered in affluent families." Drawing on her experience with wealthy parents and their children, Hausner isolates fundamental causes of problems, such as unrealistic expectations, lack of communication and misuse or lack of discipline, that apply especially to the nurturance and development of privileged children. Writing of the two-career family, often characterized by high parental achievement, the author proposes nine steps to effective parenting of this new "at risk" group of children. For busy, well-off parents who may need assistance putting their priorities in order, this is a helpful, practical if unsurprising and somewhat pedantic resource.
