Drop the Worry Ball
How to Parent in the Age of EntitlementBook - 2012
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. In this practical sensible book, parents will truly understand the dynamics between parents and their children, especially the tendency of children to recruit their parents to do too much for them. The book also counsels that failing-whether it's a test, a course, or a tryout for a team-is a natural part of growing up, and not a sign of parental incompetence.
