A primer on the world's best parenting strategies--with eye-opening research on the surprising disadvantages lurking in the typical American childhood.
Research reveals American kids today lag well behind the rest of the world in terms of academic achievement, happiness, and wellness. Meanwhile the battle over whether parents are to blame for fostering a generation of helpless kids rages on. Christine Gross-Loh (who raised her young children in Japan for five years) exposes the hidden, culturally-determined norms we have about "good parenting," and asks, are there parenting strategies that other countries are getting "right" that we are not? This book takes us from Finland, and Sweden to Germany, France, Japan, China, Italy, and more, and examines how parents successfully foster resilience, creativity, independence and academic excellence in their children. Revealing the surprising ways in which culture shapes our parenting, Gross-Loh also offers objective, research-based insight into what strategies are best for children and why.

Among her eye-opening findings:
Co-sleeping, typical in most of the world's families, may promote independence in kids. American-style "hoverparenting" is unique in the world and can damage a child's resilience. Finnish children, who rank among the world's highest academic achievers, enjoy multiple recesses a day. Our obsession with self-esteem--a concept that doesn't exist in many countries--may limit a child's potential

At last bringing empirical research to the debate, "Parenting Without Borders" offers new and provocative thinking on the secrets to raising a confident and capable generation.
