In this book, the author, a Harvard psychologist, argues that parents, not peers or television, are the primary shapers of their children’s moral lives. He contends that parents' intense focus on children's happiness; obsession with achievement; and desire to be closer to their children; have eroded their influence as moral mentors and have imperiled their children's moral growth. The author highlights inspiring parents, teachers and coaches, and presents concrete strategies for moral, happy children.

Abstract
Les enfants courent toujours. Nous leur répétons inlassablement de ralentir pour éviter de tomber et de se blesser. Une fois adulte, on court autant qu?eux, mais il n?y a plus personne pour nous dire de ralentir. Le marathon est quotidien : le 8 à 5, la routine, les enfants, les responsabilités, l?épicerie, les repas? Essoufflé. Épuisé. Brûlé. Combien de fois répétez-vous ces mots dans une seule journée. On attend les vacances avec impatience. On passe un temps fou à les planifier, on essaie de tout faire ce qu?on n?a pas fait dans l?année. Elles passent toujours trop vite. Et on revient au boulot étourdi et vidé.
On court après le bonheur. On espère devenir une meilleure personne. On vise plus de performance au travail. On recherche une relation amoureuse épanouie. Et une vie sociale bien remplie. Ah! Et les enfants? On ne pouvait pas imaginez à quel point ça prendrait autant d?énergie. Imaginez, on en a fait deux, trois ou peut-être même quatre. Comment faisaient nos arrière-grands-parents pour en élever autant? Quelle leçon n?a-t-on pas comprise?
Peut-on repenser son horaire et gagner du temps? Avons-nous seulement le temps de nous arrêter un moment et de repenser notre emploi du temps? Si vous aviez le pouvoir d?arrêter l?horloge, que feriez-vous en premier? Si on vous offrait une heure de plus par jour, comment l?occuperiez-vous? Je vous invite à une quête. Celle de trouver un sens à cette course contre la montre. Pour eux, mais surtout pour vous.

Abstract
This book argues that we live in a society where real progress has been made in the development of child-centered parenting, education and care, but that this cultural shift has produced a generation of children who are entitled to the same rights as adults but not ready to accept grown-up responsibilities - children who are "loved too much". Dr. Maggie Mamen describes common characteristics of the pampered child, and offers practical advice on how to strike an effective balance between caring for and nurturing children while at the same time maintaining authority and demanding respect.

Abstract
Written for both biological parents and stepparents, this guide provides the tools necessary to raising well-adjusted children after a stressful divorce. This etiquette book provides an authentic guide for ex-spouses to interact on a civil and healthy level. Sample conversation for everyday scenarios help exes create a positive environment and ensure the mental and physical well-being of the children. Whether it's coordinating discipline between households, introducing a new partner, dealing with late child support payments, or providing a regular schedule for children, this guide empowers parents to change what they can—their attitudes and communication skills. In doing so, divorced parents can increase their self-esteem and personal growth and emerge confident that they can handle awkward situations and powerful emotions while keeping the children's best interests a priority.

Abstract
Based on personal experience and interviews conducted with 60 other multiracial families, the author has combined anecdotal research with a strong knowledge of childhood and educational development philosophy to provide this useful guide for raising multiracial children in a color- and race-conscious world. The author believes that, although most three-year-olds are not racially aware, it is important to deflect insensitive comments from strangers about appearance. As a child grows older, this early dialogue should deepen, so that children will feel safe and comfortable discussing their racial identity with parents and be able to bring up any racially charged experiences that have occurred at school or with friends. Included are suggestions for the special problems that may arise during adolescence.

Andrew Solomon tells the stories of parents who not only learn to deal with their exceptional children but also find profound meaning in doing so. He writes about families coping with deafness, dwarfism, Down syndrome, autism, schizophrenia, multiple severe disabilities, with children who are prodigies, who are conceived in rape, who become criminals, who are transgender. While each of these characteristics is potentially isolating, the experience of difference within families is universal, as are the triumphs of love Solomon documents in every chapter.
