Click the picture to listen to the episode.
Listen in as Jimmy and Josh discuss Dr. Madeline Levine’s new book, The Price of Privilege: How Parental Pressure and Material Advantage are Creating a Generation of Disconnected and Unhappy Kids. You would think that it would be great for a kid to grow up in a home where all his needs are met, parents are focused and involved, and he’s provided with the best educational experience out there…but apparently, you’d be wrong. We’re learning that the more a child is given in life, the more toxic that life can become.

Dr. Levine's Book:
We need our kids to develop their own sense of self
In our attempts to love, we're loving them to death
This is an unsuccessful method of parenting
Let them be bored, let them work out their own problems, let them manage their own schedules
