Glenn and Nelsen feel that the rising affluence of the average American has taken a negative toll on the leaders of tomorrow. Previous generations learned self reliance as a matter of course-if you didn't chop wood for the fire and gather eggs, you couldn't eat breakfast-but the ready-made convenience of the modern world has done away with "basic training mechanisms" for our children. The authors offer a kinder "tough love" approach to parenting that will equip children to face the world on their own.
