Is parenting collapsing in our culture? Are kids less independent as kids and thus more dependent as adults? Or, are we just getting older and regurgitating the crusty “these kids today” rap of our parents and grandparents? If it’s the former, what is to be done? Are boys adrift? Are girls on edge?
Dan interviews Dr. Leonard Sax, a MIT and University of Pennsylvania educated and trained psychologist, and he is ideally suited to answer these questions considering he wrote the books: The Collapse of Parenting, Boys Adrift, and Girls on Edge.
