Family psychologist John Rosemond (The Well-Behaved Child; Teen-Proofing; Parenting by the Book) has filled more than a dozen parenting books himself, but he doesn't want to be associated with the parenting "experts," who, he believes, have poisoned the minds of mothers and dads for decades. In his latest offering, this articulate maverick argues that bestselling authors who preach bolstering kids' self-esteem have actually undermined their progeny's chance for a happy life. To prove his point, he cites studies that indicate that children raised on postmodern psychological theories are ten times more likely to experience a serious setback by their mid-teenage years than those who were raised in "less enlightened" times. Parent-Babble offers a back-to-basics regimen for those who want to put their offspring back on the right track.
