Product description

From the Inside Flap

A few decades ago, most families were intact. But today, too many kids now feel like just another chore to be outsourced--dropped off at daycare, handed over to a nanny, plopped in front of a TV or the Internet. Mary Eberstadt offers hard data proving that absent parents are the common denominator of many recent epidemics, including obesity, STDs, attention deficit disorder, and the use of psychiatric medications on even very young children. Have we already reached a tipping point in this society of unattended children and teenagers? And if so, what does that mean for our future?

About the Author

Mary Eberstadt works from home as a research fellow for Stanford University's Hoover Institution and is a consulting editor to Policy Review. She and her husband have four children and live in Washington, D.C.
