Synopsis: Helicopter parents, tiger moms, cosseters, hothouse parents . . .

Whatever we label it, overparenting—anxious, invasive, overly attentive, and competitive parenting—may have finally backfired. As we witness the first generation of overparented children becoming adults in their own right, many studies show that when baby boomer parents intervene inappropriately––with too much advice, excessive favors, and erasing obstacles that kids should negotiate themselves––their “millennial” children end up ill-behaved, anxious, narcissistic, entitled youths unable to cope with everyday life. The obsession with providing everything a child could possibly need, from macrobiotic cupcakes to 24/7 tutors, has created epidemic levels of depression and stress in our country’s youth, but this can be avoided if parents would just take a giant step back, check their ambitions at the door, and do what’s really best for their kids.

Written by a noted psychiatrist and a parenting specialist, The Overparenting Epidemic is a science-based yet humorous and practical book that features an easy-to-read menu of pragmatic, reasonable advice for how to parent children effectively and lovingly without overdoing it, especially in the context of today’s demanding world.

About the Author: George S. Glass, MD, has served as a medical doctor and board-certified psychiatrist for over thirty years. He received a BA in psychology from Swarthmore College and a medical degree from Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago, and he did his psychiatric residency at Yale University Medical School. He has served as associate professor of psychiatry at Baylor College of Medicine, University of Texas Medical School, and Cornell Weill School of Medicine. He lives in Houston, Texas.

David Tabatsky has coauthored several books, including Chicken Soup for the Soul’s The Cancer Book and the forthcoming Beautiful Old Dogs: A Loving Tribute to Our Senior Best Friends. He lives in New York City.
