Praise for Pressured Parents, Stressed-out Kids :
“Dr. Wendy Grolnick and Kathy Seal have done stressed-out parents a great service, and I wish I had had this book when my kids were little! They take on the ‘pressure cooker’ environment our children face—and how we inadvertently contribute to it—and show how to let kids live and learn at their own pace. I wish all parents could read this book!”
—Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, PhD, H. Rodney Sharp Professor, School of Education, University of Delaware, and award-winning writer of Einstein Never Used Flash Cards and How Babies Talk
"This is a first rate book. Even we sports fans who think competition can be good for kids have to admit that this book illuminates those moments when beating the other kid, or besting the family down the block, is distinctly unhealthy. The advice it offers to parents who feel real pain at such moments, who don't know how to control their own longing to succeed through their children, is the most sensible I have ever read."
-- Jay Mathews, Washington Post, and author of Work Hard. Be Nice: How Two Inspired Teachers Created the Most Promising Schools in America.
