Levine’s book crosses traditional parenting book borders by assessing what parents can do to change their attitudes towards parenting, rather than what parents can make their kids do.
Parenting Mission Statement
While we all hope that our children will do well in school, we hope with even greater fervor that they will do well in life.
Our job is to help them know and appreciate themselves deeply, to be resilient in the face of adversity, to approach the world with zest, to find work that is satisfying, friends and spouses who are loving and loyal, and to hold a deep belief that they have something meaningful to contribute to the world.
