Summary "Research reveals American kids today lag well behind the rest of the world in terms of academic achievement, happiness, and wellness. Meanwhile the battle over whether parents are to blame for fostering a generation of helpless kids rages on. Christine Gross-Loh (who raised her young children in Japan for five years) exposes the hidden, culturally-determined norms we have about good parenting, and asks, are there parenting strategies that other countries are getting right that we are not?"
Subject Parenting -- Cross-cultural studies.
