Today’s teens are growing up in a very interesting time in history. According to Dr. Robert Shaw, in his book The Epidemic: Raising Secure, Loving, Happy, and Responsible Children in an Era of Absentee and Permissive Parenting, far too many children today are sullen, unfriendly, distant, preoccupied, and even unpleasant. They whine, nag, throw tantrums,  and demand constant attention from their parents, who are spread too thin to spend enough time with them. Feeling guilty and anxious, the parents in turn soothe their kids with unhealthy snacks, faddish clothing, toys, and media.”

It seems, as parents, we’ve forgotten what children actually require in order to grow into happy, responsible adults.
