TODAY'S HELICOPTER PARENTS MAKE CHILDREN THE ETERNAL CENTER OF ATTENTION. It's a long haul from the way most of us in my generation were brought up. John Rosemond has been my hero for years; his advice is simple, straightforward and filled with wisdom and humor. Benign neglect and standing on your own two feet are unknown, seemingly cruel commodities in today's culture, yet it makes all the difference in how children turn out and whether they can handle the toughness life throws at them. As Rosemond says, when reality bites, it often has very sharp teeth.
