I picked up the book "Hold On to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More Than Peers" by Gordon Neufeld, and I did not put it down until I finished all 279 pages of it, including the glossary. Gordon Neufeld, Ph.D. is an expert on child development and his co-author Gabor Mate, M.D. Together they provide a sobering look at what "peer orientation" is and why it stunts the emotional maturation of our children. The devastating effects of this all-too-common phenomenon are seen everyday, from childhood aggression to early sexual activity. Hold On to Your Kids recognizes the problem and offers a solution for restoring the family unit and parental influence. I intend to give a copy of this book to every parent I know.
