Paranoid Parenting: Why Ignoring the Experts May Be Best for Your Child: Frank Furedi: Continuum
Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. This is a much needed book in our society right now. Furedi begins by discussing parental fears and parental over-protectiveness, and I don’t agree with all his points there. I’m still going to be terrified of stranger abduction even if the odds are one in a million. Where he is strongest is in his critique of experts for undermining parental wisdom, parental authority when the topic is discipline, and his critique of a media culture that never tires of depicting parents in film and television as idiots and children as little sages.
One of the most important points he makes is that so-called scientific studies, which many of these experts claim to employ in order to give their opinions a patina of scientific credibility, present results that change with the shifting sands. If you regard Penelope Leach as a moron, as I do, and if you’ve ever read dozens of highly recommended and very popular childrearing books and rolled your eyes the whole way through, if you’ve ever felt disgusted by the way family is portrayed in the media, if you’ve ever wondered how and why “discipline” and “punishment” became such bad words, if you’ve ever tired of hearing people blame their problems on something relatively minor that crank in childhood, and if you’ve ever praenting whether crib bumper pads are really a common killer and how your own children managed to survive them – then this book is for you.
I first came across Fureid Furedi from a radio interview. Since then I have been reading everything he writes. Paranoid Parenting is my favorite so far! It is like a voice of sanity admist a mass delusion and unsubstantiated panic that has gripped the collective unconscious of the US and UK, eventually leading to an end to adult authority and parental fured, with only “therapists” in charge.
Furedi debunks infant determinism that therapy culture clings so hard to, and people who like to blame their parents for their failures probably won’t like this book! This book explains very well the growing paranoia of modern parents. This is a resolute attack against parenting determinism.
It is regrettable, however, that the author’s references are not more “scientific” than those he reproaches to parenting determinism advocates of using. Moreover, he is not far from praising spanking, which is “proven” very bad for children. See all 3 reviews. There’s a problem loading this menu right now.
