Reviews

"The Collapse of Parenting is one of the best books I've ever read on the subject of raising children. It's not written from a religious perspective, but it's chock-full of information every parent should have."--National CatholicRegister
"The Collapse of Parenting may sound like a lone voice in the world of American parenting these days, but it's a desperately needed one.... If you're going to read a single parenting book this year, please make it this one."--Treehugger.com
"[Sax is] sounding some alarms that we'd do well to heed, and for our kids' sakes, I think sooner is better than later."--Chicago Tribune
"[Sax's] guidelines are clear and well-supported."--Booklist
"A comprehensive breakdown of where parents have gone awry and how they can get back on track to teach virtue and character to their children."--Kirkus
"Based on years of extensive clinical practice and interviews with students and parents internationally, Sax presents a sobering and alarming picture of the collapse of parenting in this country. But he does not leave the reader without hope; he offers simple, if not easy solutions, giving parents an accessible guide to help them regain their rightful roles."--Dr. Nancy Kehoe, assistant clinical professor of psychology atHarvard Medical School, and author of Wrestling with Our Inner Angels: Faith, Mental Illness and the Journey to Wholeness

His book is a highly readable and well-informed challenge for us."--Dr. Timothy Wright, Headmaster, Shore School, Sydney(Australia)
"The family unit is in unprecedented decline and under assault from a wide variety of cultural forces. With years of experience and research working directly with parents and children, Dr. Leonard Sax provides an important glimpse into parenting in modern times, where it's gone wrong, and how to fix it. Being a parent has never been more important and Dr. Sax explains how to avoid parenting pitfalls and raise your children well."--Dr. Bill Bennett, former United States Secretary of Education
