Basic Books #ad - If kids refuse to eat anything green and demand pizza instead, some parents give in, inadvertently raising children who are more likely to become obese.

Drawing on more than twenty-five years of experience as a family physician and psychologist, and teachers across the United States and around the world, parents, along with hundreds of interviews with children, Sax offers a blueprint parents can use to refresh and renew their relationships with their children to help their children thrive in an increasingly complicated world.

Sax argues that rising levels of obesity, depression, and anxiety among young people—as well as the explosion in prescribing psychiatric medications to kids—can all be traced to parents letting their kids call the shots. Many parents are afraid of seeming too dictatorial and end up abdicating their authority rather than taking a stand with their own children.
