Drop the Worry Ball: Parenting in the Age of Entitlement
How do you avoid being a helicopter parent-and raise well adjusted, truly independent children? In an age of entitlement, where most kids think they deserve the best of everything, most parents are afraid of failing their children. Not only are they all too willing to provide every material comfort, they’ve also become overly involved in their children’s lives, becoming meddlesome managers, rather than sympathetic advocates. In Drop the Worry Ball, authors Alex Russell and Tim Falconer offer a refreshing approach to raising well-adjusted children who are also independent and unafraid to make mistakes.
“Drop the Worry Ball is full of common-sense strategies for parents worn out from worrying about their kids. One of the smartest parenting books on the shelf. A must read.”Jennifer Kolari
