Blessings of a Skinned Knee

Dr. Wendy Mogel

Dr. Mogel’s disarming candor, quick wit, and signature use of cutting-edge psychological research coupled with timeless wisdom, guides parents through the rough waters of child-rearing, adding a measure of joy and humor to their voyage. Drawing on insights from her thirty-five year career in clinical psychology, hilarious anecdotes (and sound advice) from school and camp counselors, and eye-opening conversations with middle and high school students, Dr. Mogel unravels the paradox of good-intentioned, devoted parenting gone astray. She explains how over-protection, over-scheduling, over-indulgence and perfectionism undermine children’s intrinsic motivation, resilience, and pride in their achievements. Parents are freed to adopt a kinder, firmer, and ultimately more effective approach to the trenches of daily family life.
