As a professional counselor I recommend this book to parents of children of all ages. We Americans understand the highly competitive world our children are living in and we work hard at preparing them for success. Without realizing it, we sabotage our own efforts, effectively adding to their problems. Dr. Levine provides an excellent and detailed look at how to parent our children in our society in a way that creates strong individual character and capability. I have used this book in book reviews for parent groups at my church as well as in individual counseling. Every parent I've asked to read it has come back saying how grateful they were. This isn't about being a bad parent. This is about how to be a better parent. As a parent and grandparent, I have purchased a copy for my own children's use. If I had my way, it would be given to parents at the hospital and made to be required reading! SSH

I read this book as part of my research on perfectionism in teens. Levine presents excellent data in a style that is readable. I have shared her book with my gifted students and their parents, as well.

This book is a great help to me as a therapist treating this type of adolescent, especially in helping parents understand how their child got to be the underachieving kid that they are sending to therapy.

Engaging, thoughtful book that explores the impact of material wealth in American families. The author offers invaluable advice for child-rearing through heart-wrenching real-life anecdotes. Recommended.

This book does an excellent job confirming my suspicions about the way our children are growing up. Highly recommended read for parents and teachers, especially if you are willing to be confronted with some potentially stinging truths.

The summary of this book that I downloaded from ParentsDigest was full of information that helped me take a good look at my own behavior towards my kids and how I can do a better job of helping them to make better decisions in a world where so much is handed to them on a silver platter.
