We have moved from an era in which children were treated as though they were part of the furniture, left very much to their own devices, to a society in which they have become the core of family life. This approach to childrearing, far from producing mature, autonomous and natural children, creates hyper-protected, often insecure children and with a strong sense of entitlement. This book provides advice on how to step back from this model, to enjoy a more serene and relaxed approach to parenting.
Written with great humour and freshness, this book reflects an everyday reality with which many parents will identify. The author analyses the causes of the phenomenon of hyper parenting and provides practical advice on how to overcome it.
