5) The Myth of the Spoiled Child: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom about Children and Parenting - Alfie Kohn Da Capo Press 2014 EPUB. Somehow, a set of deeply conservative assumptions about children-what they're like and how they should be raised - have congealed into the conventional wisdom in our society. Parents are accused of being both permissive and overprotective, unwilling to set limits and afraid to let their kids fail. In The Myth of the Spoiled Child, Alfie Kohn systematically debunks these beliefs-not only challenging erroneous factual claims but also exposing the troubling ideology that underlies them.

Alfie Kohn, author of Myth of the Spoiled Child, challenges these commonly held beliefs and calls for a more balanced style of parenting

I am of two completely opposing opinions in regard to this book. Alfie Kohn, author of Myth of the Spoiled Child, challenges these commonly held beliefs and calls for a more balanced style of parenting. Kohn does an excellent job easing the worries of those who are concerned for the younger generations. He systematically goes through the common arguments that are made about Millennials and debunks them.

Children and Parenting (2011). The Homework Myth: Why Our Kids Get Too Much of a Bad Thing (2006). Unconditional Parenting: Moving from Rewards and Punishments to Love and Reason (2005). Taken together, they have become our society’s conventional wisdom about children, to the point that whenever a newspaper or magazine addresses any of these topics, it will almost always be from this direction. If the subject is self-esteem, the thesis will be that children have an oversupply. If the subject is discipline (and limits imposed by parents), the writer will insist that kids today get too little.

But author Alfie Kohn debunks this kind of thinking in his new book, The Myth of the Spoiled Child: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom about Children and Parenting. DeCapo Press, 2014, 268 pages. Kohn has made a name for himself by questioning the origins and scientific accuracy of our cultural assumptions-for example, in his book The Homework Myth, he wrote about the lack of evidence supporting the benefits of assigning homework.

Somehow, deeply conservative assumptions about how children behave and how parents raise them have become the conventional wisdom in our society. It's widely assumed that parents are both permissive and overprotective, unable to set limits and afraid to let their kids fail. We're told that young people receive trophies, praise, and A's too easily, and suffer from inflated self-esteem and insufficient self-discipline. However, complaints about pushover parents and entitled kids are actually decades old and driven, it turns out, by ideology more than evidence.

The major threat to healthy child development, Kohn argues, is posed by parenting that is too controlling rather than too indulgent. A wise and passionate book - by one of the best friends our children have today - that is also a delight to read. With the same lively, contrarian style that marked his influential books about rewards, competition, and education, Kohn relies on a vast collection of social science data, as well as on logic and humor, to challenge assertions that appear with numbing regularity in the popular press. We're told that young people receive trophies, praise, and A's too easily, and suffer from inflated self esteem and insufficient self-discipline.

Somehow, a set of deeply conservative assumptions about children--what they're like and how they should be raised--have congealed into the conventional wisdom in our society. Parents are accused of being both permissive and overprotective, unwilling to set limits and afraid to let their kids fail. Young people, meanwhile, are routinely described as entitled and narcissistic...among other unflattering adjectives. In The Myth of the Spoiled Child , Alfie Kohn systematically debunks these beliefs--not only challenging erroneous factual claims but also exposing the troubling ideology that underlies them. Complaints about pushover parents and coddled kids are hardly new, he shows, and there is no evidence that either phenomenon is especially widespread today--let alone more common than in previous generations. Moreover, new research reveals that helicopter parenting is quite rare and, surprisingly, may do more good than harm when it does occur. The major threat to healthy child development, John argues, is posed by parenting that is too controlling rather than too indulgent. With the same lively, contrarian style that marked his influential books about rewards, competition, and education, Kohn relies on a vast collection of social science data, as well as on logic and humor, to challenge assertions that appear with numbing regularity in the popular press. These include claims that young people suffer from inflated self-esteem; that they receive trophies, praise, and As too easily; and that they would benefit from more self-discipline and "grit." These conservative beliefs are often accepted without question, even by people who are politically liberal. Kohn's invitation to reexamine our assumptions is particularly timely, then; his book has the potential to change our culture's conversation about kids and the people who raise them.
