Award-winning independent journalist and certified parent educator Katherine Reynolds Lewis discusses her eye-opening parenting guide, The Good News about Bad Behavior: Why Kids Are Less Disciplined Than Ever--And What to Do about It. Katherine will be in conversation with Julie Lythcott-Haims, author of How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success and Real American: A Memoir

The current model of parental discipline is as outdated as a rotary phone.
Today's parents live with an exhausting reality: persistent defiance from children. About half of the current generation of children will develop a mood or behavioral disorder or a substance addiction by age eighteen. And many parents feel increasingly unable to exert any influence over their children. In our highly connected age, the all-powerful parent is largely a thing of the past.
In this book, journalist and parenting expert Katherine Reynolds Lewis proposes a radical solution: empathy. As she journeys from parenting seminars to neuroscience labs to schools to the homes of modern parents, Lewis documents a crisis of self-regulation--and shows how children rise to the occasion when their parents learn to trust them, let them face consequences, and train them in the art of self-control. She watches as chaotic homes become peaceful, bewildered teachers see progress, and her own family grows and changes in light of new ideas. You'll recognize your own family in Lewis's sensitive, realistic stories, and you'll find a path to making everyone in your home more capable, kinder, and happier--including yourself.
