THE MYTH OF THE SPOILED CHILD

“Filled with surprising insights and counterintuitive data…An energetic…argument against all the columnists, politicians and pundits who insist children today are spoiled.” The New York Times

“Kohn attacks the status quo on child-rearing and parenting…Via research and interviews, Kohn closely examines the current media-backed perceptions of permissive and controlling parenting and contrasts them with actual data, deflating popular beliefs that children are now more spoiled and unruly than ever…A thought-provoking, semicontroversial scrutiny of modern parenting practices.” Kirkus Reviews

“With his trademark blend of skepticism and idealism, [Kohn] dismantles most of the hype surrounding motivation and competition, failure and success.” Boston Globe

“A wise and passionate book–by one of the best friends our children have today–that is also a delight to read.” Jonathan Kozol, author of Fire in the Ashes
