Description

For Our Own Good examines the psycho-social and political repercussions of prevailing approaches to child-rearing. Learn why warm and nurturing parents produce secure, altruistic children who go on to form progressive political beliefs while the children of punitive, authoritarian parents are bound by fear and shame to support right-wing causes and candidates. If you've ever wondered how big a role parenting plays in shaping personality and the political and cultural values of the broader society, this book is a must read.
