Product description

Review

"Powerful text. . . . Parents who want their kids to succeed without compromising their health or losing the joy of learning will be buoyed by Levine's support, encouragement, and guidance."--Publishers Weekly

"Levine, author of The Price of Privilege, offers practical tips for helping kids relax, cope with the very real demands of adolescence and mature into healthy adults."--San Jose Mercury News

"A fantastic, on-point, desperately needed book! If you have children or care about children or care about the future of this country and the world, read this book."--Dr. Ned Hallowell, author of The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness

"Madeline Levine's voice is a welcome antidote to the Tiger-Momming of America. [Teach Your Children Well] is packed with smart and savvy advice for raising independent, productive, and well-adjusted young people. Read this book--your kids will thank you."--Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

"For the sake of the adults of tomorrow, I hope that Teach Your Children Well becomes a must-read and must-discuss book for parents today."--Kenneth R. Ginsburg MD, MS Ed, author of Letting Go with Love and Confidence and Building Resilience in Children and Teens

"Levine really comes into her own . . . when she moves beyond child development to concentrate instead on parent development, exploring why we do the misguided things we do, and asking how we must (as we must) change ourselves and behave differently."--Judith Warner, New York Times Book Review (Editor's Choice)

"Here's one potentially bright and shiny opportunity for optimism (at least if you take her advice) thanks to one busy and one hope's wise clinical psychologist. . . . Her insights are fresh . . . look no further for your Beach Book, here it is!"--Psychology Today

"An excellent new book."--Forbes

"Practical advice for raising well-rounded and successful children. . . . A rethinking of the term 'success' provides new insight on how to raise today's youth."--Kirkus Reviews

"A modern guide for the perplexed! First Levine captures a culture which puts competition and social status ahead of character. Then, with a gentle, firm remarkably clear head, she tells parents precisely what to do to bring good sense and respect for children back to parenting."--Wendy Mogel, PhD, author of The Blessing of a B Minus and The Blessing of a Skinned Knee

Product Description

Psychologist Madeline Levine, author of the New York Times bestseller The Price of Privilege, brings together cutting-edge research and thirty years of clinical experience to explode once and for all the myth that good grades, high test scores, and college acceptances should define the parenting endgame.

Teach Your Children Well is a toolbox for parents, providing information, relevant research and a series of exercises to help parents clarify a definition of success that is in line with their own values as well as their children’s interests and abilities. Teach Your Children Well is a must-read for parents, educators, and therapists looking for tangible tools to help kids thrive in today’s high-stakes, competitive culture.
