Drop the Worry Ball: How to Parent in the Age of Entitlement by Alex RussellHow to avoid being a helicopter parent--and raise well adjusted, truly independent childrenIn an age of entitlement, where most kids think they deserve the best of everything, most parents are afraid of failing their children. Not only are they all too willing to provide every material comfort, theyve also become overly involved in their childrens lives, becoming meddlesome managers, rather than sympathetic advocates. In Drop the Worry Ball, authors Alex Russell and Tim Falconer offer a refreshing approach to raising well-adjusted children--who are also independent and unafraid to make mistakes.
In this practical sensible book, parents will truly understand the dynamics between parents and their children, especially the tendency of children to recruit their parents to do too much for them. The book also counsels that failing--whether its a test, a course, or a tryout for a team--is a natural part of growing up, and not a sign of parental incompetence.Shows how to resist the pressure to become over involved in your childs lifeHow to retire as a gatekeeper or manager of your childs life, and become a genuine source of supportBuild trusting relationships with teachers, coaches, camp counselors, and other authority figures--so they can play an effective role in your childs lifeUnderstand problems such as ADHD, anxiety, and substance abuse
A guidebook for parenting courageously and responsibly--allowing your kids to be who they are while building structures that keep them safe--Drop the Worry Ball is a must for any parent who wishes to be and do their very best.

I remember story after story my dad would tell me about his childhood, how him and his brothers he had 5 by the way, yes 5 brothers! When he and my mother raised me not a whole lot had changed, we lived in the same safe small community he was raised in and my friends lived close by. I did any homework I had by myself and rules were few but I followed them. Sometimes too anxious as Dr. About the Book.
