In this rapidly changing world in which divorce, mental health issues, aggression, and promiscuity among children are on the rise, and education, economic prosperity, and life satisfaction are declining, families are in search of a new parenting script.

With a down-to-earth style, she addresses real-life issues that parents face with their children on a daily basis, such as the lure of social networking, sexual temptation, and fierce competition among peers. Parenting 2.0 provides concrete advice that helps parents remove the blindfolds, cultivate their childrenas abilities to develop and adapt at any age or stage, and discover that growth can be an invigorating two-way street.All time is not the same in child development. he twentyfirstcentury edition of childhood development will cast amuchwidernet than simply becoming asuperior parent. ...
