“...a must-read book for parents, educators and all concerned with the health and well-being of America’s children.” (Madeline Levine, Ph.D., author of The Price of Privilege )
“...an important new look at the evolution of child rearing among the global middle class. Honore’s final words to parents are comforting: Trust your instincts and let your children be children. There’s time enough for all that achievement later.” (Oregonian )
“Honoré presents a list of ways in which parents all over the developed world have long been robbing their children of their childhoods by inserting themselves into every facet of their children’s lives. . . . Joining a crowded field of child-rearing books, this is an excellent choice.” (Library Journal )
