Summary:
Physician, psychologist, and author Leonard Sax presents data documenting a dramatic decline in the achievement and psychological health of American children. But there is hope. Sax shows how parents can help their kids by reasserting their authority--by limiting time with screens, by encouraging better habits at the dinner table and at bedtime, and by teaching humility and perspective.
