Physician to parents: You’re doing it wrong

Physician to parents: You’re doing it wrong

I have been a fan of Leonard Sax for many years. His books are amazing. Love his nuggets of advice in this article.

The hierarchy of parent over child no longer exists, he said. Instead of parents exercising their authority because they know what’s best, they are focusing on making children happy and boosting their self-esteem.

Instead, Sax said, a parent’s job is to teach children right from wrong, teach them the meaning of life and keep their children safe.

“In doing that job, you’re going to do a lot of things a child won’t approve of and not understand,” he said. Sometimes, you have to be the bad guy.
