"Dr Philip Dembo presents in his new book, THE PARENT COACH, a model of parenting that finally addresses our nations ongoing crisis...We are raising children with little or no character or conscience. The generations of young people have little work ethic, little worry about how their actions affect others, and seem to want it all with little sacrifice. The book looks at the current parenting strategies as a contributor to the underdevelopment of children today. Parents, in all their effort to gain compliance from their children, are actually interfering with their development. What do we do now? How do we undo what we have been doing? THE PARENT COACH gives us a model that links the development of a child's ""true voice"" with his/her actual experience to the strategies of parents and their important role in ""coaching"" their child's journey through their own growth. "
