Psychologist Madeline Levine, author of the New York Times bestseller The Price of Privilege, brings together cutting-edge research and thirty years of clinical experience to explode once and for all the myth that good grades, high test scores, and college acceptances should define the parenting endgame. Teach Your Children Well is a toolbox for parents, providing information, relevant research and a series of exercises to help parents clarify a definition of success that is in line with their own values as well as their children's interests and abilities. Teach Your Children Well is a must-read for parents, educators, and therapists looking for tangible tools to help kids thrive in today's high-stakes, competitive culture.

"Cassandra Campbell's near-flawless phrasing and diction deliver this important book with the seriousness it deserves. She has a firm grip on the author's message--that goals for our children should be broader than traditional benchmarks like academic achievement. Sometimes, Campbell's gravitas sounds a bit at odds with Madeline Levine's personable writing, but it works well nevertheless to advance the author's well-documented mission, which is to encourage parents to put more thought and energy into developing children's character traits such as resilience, purpose, independence of mind, and a healthy ability to connect with others. Campbell's firm clarity is an undeniably appealing way to present the author's scholarship and advice. It works less well in expressing Levine's personal investment in this touching humanitarian lesson. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
