Summary
"In the space of a few decades the way we parent has changed dramatically. Something we once did intuitively has become the subject of political fashion, guided by experts. The result? Our children - right across society - are now spoilt in ways that go far beyond materialism. In this book, Dr Aric Sigman - himself a hands-on father of four - takes issues by the scruff of the neck, among them children's sense of entitlement, the effects of television and computers, single-parent homes and 'blended' families, parental guilt and the compensation culture." -- Back cover

Are We Spoiling Our Children? by psychologist Dr Aric Sigman offers a wealth of practical advice to parents and others, but projects an important message for society too. Parenting has become a political issue and requires a book that offers self-help elements but also manages to be polemical. In many ways, our position as parents has been emasculated; our authority has been undermined. Unable to distinguish between being authoritarian versus authoritative, 'best friend' or superior, our roles seem less defined. There is a growing recognition that the tail is wagging the dog and it is not good for either. For the first time, " spoiled children" and the serious implications for schools and society was the main theme of the General Secretary's speech to the Association of School and College Leaders Annual Conference. This book will explain exactly how parenting is the main determinant of our children's outcome, society's health and our future. It will offer a clear practical message about what we need to do as parents, grandparents, teachers, lawmakers and policy makers to redress the situation and cultivate better-behaved and, most importantly, happier children.Through extensive international travel to observe the way people live and parent, Dr Sigman has identified universal principles of parenting that are impervious to time or political fashion and that transcend cultures ? principles that all children desperately need and which he will share in this important book
