The Collapse of Parenting with Dr. Leonard Sax, Part 1 (#22)
Show Notes

Dr. Leonard Sax is an American Psychologist and Family Physician with over 30 years experience. He is the internationally acclaimed author of our featured book, The Collapse of Parenting, which identifies a cultural shift in the parenting role in relation to the way parents are raising their children.

In this conversation, Melanie and Dr. Sax focus on Chapters 1 thru 5, identifying multiple factors that have lead to a loss of parental authority. He pinpoints the toxic cultural shift over the last 20-30 years that is now at the forefront of our popular culture. Dr. Sax's book is weighted with research and world-wide studies that cover the negative impacts of sleep deprivation, over-importance of peer relationships, and the uncensored media use that are now having profound consequences on America's children.
