Summary, etc.:
Today's parents live with an exhausting reality: persistent defiance from children. About half of the current generation of children will develop a mood or behavioral disorder or a substance addiction by age eighteen. And many parents feel increasingly unable to exert any influence over their children. In our highly connected age, the all-powerful parent is largely a thing of the past.
Parents often take the blame for their child's misbehavior, but this obscures a broader trend: in our modern, highly connected age, children have less self-control than ever. Contemporary kids need to learn independence and responsibility, yet our old ideas of punishments and rewards are preventing this from happening. Lewis offers a new theory of discipline that centers on learning the art of self-control. She shows that, if we trust our children to face consequences, they will learn to adapt and moderate their own behavior. -- adapted from jacket.
