It can be hugely frustrating and even lonely trying to figure out what&#39;s best for your kid. Should you be a taskmaster or a best friend? Is there a middle ground? The pressures of full-time work and round-the-clock activities can make that question even more challenging to tackle.</p><p>Dr. Leonard Sax has experience in guiding these relationships as a family physician and psychologist in Pennsylvania. His new book,&nbsp;<em>The Collapse Of Parenting: How We Hurt Our Kids When We Treat Them Like Grown Ups</em>&nbsp;is informed Sax&#39;s personal and professional observations.</p><p>&quot;That&#39;s what motivated it, but this is not a rant. It&#39;s not a sermon,&quot; he says, adding that his book is grounded in more than 400 studies.</p><p>In an interview with NPR&#39;s Rachel Martin, Dr. Sax discusses what he sees as a widespread trend of dissolving healthy relationships between kids and their parents.</p><div><hr /></div><p><img alt="" class="image-original_image" src="http://www.wbez.org/system/files/styles/original_image/llo/insert-images/9780465048977_custom-b17b1859670c1c71ab03711ece91121254e288bb-s400-c85.jpg" style="height: 471px; width: 310px; margin-left: 10px; margin-right: 10px; float: right;" title="The Collapse of Parenting How We Hurt Our Kids When We Treat Them Like Grown-ups: The Three Things You Must Do To Help Your Child or Teen Become a Fulfilled Adult by Leonard, M.D., Ph.D. Sax" /></p><h3>Interview Highlights</h3><p><strong>On the meaning of the book&#39;s title</strong></p><p>The point of the book is, look, you need to give kids choices in some domains but not in others. I&#39;m seeing a lot of parents who are really confused about in what domain is it appropriate to give kids a choice. For example, is it OK for your 14-year-old to take their cell phone to bed with them? My answer is no. But so many parents think it is their job to be their child&#39;s best friend. That&#39;s not your job. Your job is to keep your child safe, make sure they get a good night&#39;s sleep and give them a grounding and confidence and help them to know who they are as human beings.</p><p><strong>On the problems with parent-child relationships he&#39;s seen over the years</strong></p><p>So many kids today care so much more about the opinions of other kids than they do about their parents&#39;. And that&#39;s really harmful because the regard of your peers, if you&#39;re an 8-year-old or 14-year-old, that can change overnight. So if you&#39;re concerned first and foremost about what your peers think, you&#39;re gonna be anxious. And we&#39;ve seen a 400 percent explosion in anxiety among American kids in the United States over the last 30 years. An American kid in the United States is now 14 times more likely to be on medication for ADD compared to a kid in the United Kingdom.</p><p><strong>On the correlation between medication and the collapse of parenting</strong></p><p>I can tell you exactly how it happens. Here&#39;s a typical story: This boy tells his parents that he&#39;s having trouble concentrating and focusing and they take him to a board-certified child psychiatrist. And the child psychiatrist says, &quot;Ah, sounds like maybe ADHD, let&#39;s try Adderall or Vyvanse and see if it helps.&quot; And oh my gosh, what a difference &mdash; medication helps enormously. The child, the teacher, the parent and even the prescribing physician saying, &quot;Hey this medication was prescribed for ADD, it&#39;s clearly been helpful, therefore this kid must have ADD.&quot; But he doesn&#39;t.</p><div class="image-insert-image "><img alt="" class="image-original_image" src="http://www.wbez.org/system/files/styles/original_image/llo/insert-images/quote-so-many-parents-think-it_0.png" style="height: 212px; width: 310px; float: right; margin-left: 10px; margin-right: 10px;" title="" /></div><p>The parents bring him to me for a second opinion and I ask some questions like, &quot;What do you do in the evening?&quot; and the parents have no idea, he&#39;s in his bedroom with the door closed so his parents don&#39;t know what&#39;s going on and they think he&#39;s asleep but he&#39;s not. He&#39;s staying up &#39;til 1 or 2 in the morning playing video games night after night. He&#39;s sleep-deprived. And if you&#39;re sleep-deprived you&#39;re not gonna be able to pay attention and all the standard questionnaires, Conners Scales, etc. cannot distinguish whether you&#39;re not paying attention because you&#39;re sleep-deprived or because you truly have ADD.</p><p><strong>On the challenges that will come with altering parenting style</strong></p><p>It depends on how you&#39;ve been parenting so far. And the earlier the child, the easier it is to make a change. If you&#39;ve been the permissive parent who lets kids take their phones and their devices into their bedrooms with them, lets kids decide what&#39;s for supper, it&#39;s gonna be a challenge. And I recommend that you sit down with your child and say, &quot;Hey, there&#39;s gonna be some changes here.&quot;</p><p>So, for example, one mom took the cell phone away because her daughter&#39;s spending all her time texting and Snapchatting. And the daughter didn&#39;t push back. And her friends were like &quot;Oh, you know her mom&#39;s the weird mom who took her phone away.&quot; The real push back &mdash; and this is what surprised this mom &mdash; came from the parents of her daughter&#39;s friends, who really got on her case and said, &quot;How can you do this?&quot; and this mom told me that she thinks the other parents are uncertain, unsure of what they should be doing and so that&#39;s why they&#39;re lashing out at her &mdash; the one mom who has the strength to take a stand.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://www.npr.org/2016/01/31/465022651/to-rebuild-the-collapse-of-parenting-its-going-to-be-a-challenge?ft=nprml&amp;f=465022651"><em>via NPR</em></a></p><div id="res465027518"><div><div><h3>&nbsp;</h3></div></div></div><p>&nbsp;</p></p> Mon, 01 Feb 2016 12:29:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/program/weekend-edition/2016-02-01/rebuild-collapse-parenting-its-going-be-challenge-114657 StoryCorps Chicago: Brothers Adopted by Different Parents Reconnect Later in Life http://www.wbez.org/series/storycorps/storycorps-chicago-brothers-adopted-different-parents-reconnect-later-life-114573 <img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://llnw.wbez.org//main-images/bros.jpg" alt="" /><p><div><p>When Ken Jackson got married a little over a year ago, one of his groomsmen was Jeremy Rodgers.

Others are disputing the account, including his older brother, Ted Kennedy Jr., a Connecticut state senator.</p><p>Those inner-family disputes are not uncommon, according to&nbsp;Robert Ackerman, an expert on alcoholism and family life. Siblings can have different experiences with a parent&rsquo;s addiction, he says, and in some cases, one sibling may not recognize the problem at all.</p><p>Here &amp; Now&lsquo;s Robin Young speaks with Ackerman about alcoholism and the many ways that it impacts family and children.</p><hr /><p><strong><span style="font-size:18px;">Interview Highlights</span></strong></p><p><strong>How common is it for one child to say something and another to stay silent?</strong></p><p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s very common. Several years ago I was amazed when I met adult children of alcoholics whose siblings did not consider themselves to be adult children of alcoholics. There&rsquo;s a lot of different reasons for it &ndash; it runs all the way from your perception, your age, your gender can have a lot to do with it. Daughters of alcoholics talked about their experience very differently than sons talked about their experience. Let me give you an example. Daughters of alcoholic fathers, which is the most common in 60 percent of cases, talked about their dads almost from a defensive point of view, but daughters of alcoholic mothers talked about their moms almost from an attacking point of view. A man can get inebriated and make a fool out of himself in public, but by our cultural standards, he&rsquo;s still permitted to feel masculine. But it&rsquo;s very difficult for a woman to do the same thing.&rdquo;</p><p><strong>Can someone really deny that a family member is alcoholic?</strong></p><p>&ldquo;Well yes, we would think after all these years we&rsquo;d have a handle on the concept of denial. One way of looking at it is what&rsquo;s really in it for the person who really does deny. Men coming out of alcoholic families &ndash; boy if it&rsquo;s your mom, we will deny for a much longer time if mom had a drinking problem than if dad had a drinking problem. I denied and protected my dad for years, and finally when I was older I thought about what&rsquo;s in it for me, and I thought, as long as I deny that he was alcoholic, I got to deny that it really hurt me. If I wasn&rsquo;t hurt then I didn&rsquo;t have to do anything about it. And I found out later that that&rsquo;s just not true, it had a huge impact on me. One classic case I saw was one time people came to hear me speak and there were sisters asking all kinds of questions, and the father was alcoholic but had quit drinking, but the older sister went on and on, and the younger sister said, &lsquo;we never realized you were impacted by this&rsquo; and this really quiet mother spoke up and said, &lsquo;you weren&rsquo;t affected, none of you were affected&rsquo; just like that. And you know, mom spent her life trying to protect her children and if her kids were affected, then mom thought maybe she had failed.&rdquo;</p><p><strong>On the disastrous nature of anonymity for children of alcoholic parents</strong></p><div>&ldquo;You mentioned Patrick Kennedy and his &lsquo;conspiracy of silence&rsquo;. I&rsquo;ve always talked about, if you&rsquo;re living in an alcoholic family, addiction takes hostages. It puts a whole lid on what you can and can&rsquo;t say in your family, and it starts to put a lid on yourself and pretty soon you find yourself going out of your way to cover up what you live with every day. The stuff that really stands out the most is that it really has an impact in normal human development. Those things you and I should work on as we grow up &ndash; the development of trust, the development of intimacy with other people, a great sense of creativity, a sense of self-accomplishment. When you&rsquo;re second or third to a bottle or to OxyContin, it&rsquo;s very painful. I was aware of this as a kid and I never said anything to anybody but I never felt that I was as good as the other children, like &lsquo;wow they must have come from a really good home&rsquo; and I just was not about to share my home. And it&rsquo;s not just about what&rsquo;s happening to you &ndash; I believe the greatest impact, especially on children, it&rsquo;s not what happened, it&rsquo;s about what they&rsquo;re missing.&rdquo;</div><p><strong>On the terrifying moment of intervention</strong><br />&ldquo;We have absolutely no idea how that parent is going to take it. I wound up with the same thing, I finally got enough nerve to say something to my father when I was a young man and my dad sort of politely told me where to go. The number one thing is, and I believe this more than anything else, that is people and members of an alcoholic family quite simply have a right to recovery. It&rsquo;s as simple as that, whether that person is five or 55 years old. And that right does not depend on whether that alcoholic gets sober, it depends on whether or not you take enough interest in yourself or your children to get help. You can&rsquo;t sit around and wait for somebody who&rsquo;s drug-affected to make a rational decision.&rdquo;</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2015/10/08/dealing-with-alcoholism-in-the-family" target="_blank"><em> via Here &amp; Now</em></a></p></p> Thu, 08 Oct 2015 15:00:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/programs/here-and-now/2015-10-08/dealing-alcoholism-family-113249 Parents bond over closing of a Chicago public school http://www.wbez.org/series/storycorps/parents-bond-over-closing-chicago-public-school-112075 <img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://llnw.wbez.org//main-images/StoryCorps 150521 Jeanette Angela bh.jpg" alt="" /><p><p>In 2013, Chicago Public Schools closed fifty schools as part of a restructuring.

The two girls shared a class together freshman year, but didn&#39;t become close until earlier this school year.</p><p>They&rsquo;re on track to graduate soon: Brittany plans to go into the military, while Imani plans to study nursing. In this week&#39;s StoryCorps, they trade stories about their rocky relationships with their parents and how their friendship has helped them navigate life thus far.</p><p>&ldquo;When my mom had me, she didn&rsquo;t know she was pregnant with me,&rdquo; Brittany said, &ldquo;She was in jail because she got busted with a lot of drugs and they took us away from her.&rdquo;</p><p>Brittany doesn&rsquo;t remember her dad, even though she has photographs with him. When asked by Imani how she feels about that, Brittany responds by saying it would be nice to find out more about him. &ldquo;But then I kind of really don&rsquo;t care,&rdquo; she said.</p><p>Imani grew up with her mom but her dad wasn&rsquo;t always present. When she was four or five years old, her dad said he would take her to a movie. She sat on the porch and waited, but he never came. Eventually Imani&rsquo;s mom brought her inside, kicking and screaming. She cried herself to sleep that night, and she says it was the first time her dad ever let her down.</p><p>The two girls have learned to protect themselves from the emotional pain caused by others. They show signs of emotional maturity far beyond their years. And they look to each other for comfort: &ldquo;It&rsquo;s just nice to know that somebody has your back,&rdquo; Imani says. Brittany agrees, saying, &ldquo;It feels good to hear the truth from somebody.&rdquo;</p></p> Tue, 14 Apr 2015 09:33:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/sections/special-series/storycorps-chicago-high-school-friends-help-navigate-family-relationships Young couple prepares for the birth of their first child http://www.wbez.org/series/storycorps/young-couple-prepares-birth-their-first-child-110958 <img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://llnw.wbez.org//main-images/StoryCorps 141017 Meg and Bobby Hart.jpg" alt="" /><p><p>Megan and Bobby Hart met after college, while preparing to do the Peace Corps in Burkina Faso.</p><p>Three years ago, they got married.

We&rsquo;ve kind of settled down and I think we&rsquo;re ready to bring somebody else into our lives now.&rdquo;</p><p>&ldquo;We&rsquo;re not woefully underprepared,&rdquo; Bobby says, &ldquo;but how do you know if you&rsquo;re really ready for this new experience that you&rsquo;ve never had? I&rsquo;ve never even really babysat. So this is really something that it&rsquo;s tough to say that I&rsquo;m absolutely prepared for.&rdquo;</p><p>&ldquo;What are you most looking forward to with this child coming into our lives?&rdquo; Meg wants to know.</p><p>&ldquo;Oh, gosh! This is the person I get to hopefully teach the lessons that I think are really important. And maybe expand and move those things. I&rsquo;m excited to be able to have a relationship similar to the one that my father and mother have with me. All those sorts of cultural things you take from your parents. I&rsquo;m looking to be on the other side of that equation. And share those with a son or daughter. What about you?&rdquo;</p><p>&ldquo;I&rsquo;m looking forward to that relationship,&rdquo; Meg says. &ldquo;You know I love you very much. But the way that our parents love us, I&rsquo;m excited to experience that love for somebody that is uncontrollable and overwhelming.
