Letter from a Reader

In response to the 3 Apr. 2000 issue,
"Failing to Parent"

The Northern City Journal article for 4/3 is so very correct. I hope the right people read this one. I think I'll give it to some selected patients in my practice. Someone has to be the parent. Too many people abdicate their position as soon as the child has a coherent thought. The consequences truly are obvious when you see families with five year olds telling their parents what to do.
