In Parenthood by Proxy, Dr. Laura urges parents to make their own children top priority and to change their lives, if necessary, to do so. In her inimitable, straight-shooting style, Dr. Laura entreats parents to involve themselves in their children's hearts, minds, and souls, to cherish and protect them, and to commit to the essential tast of teaching them right from wrong. She acknowledges that parents don't get much support today from neighbors or public and private institutions, but she urges mothers and fathers to work even harder to counteract the prevailing culture of selfishness and irresponsibility.
Parenthood by Proxy covers all aspects of parenting, from childbearing to discipline, from multiple families to being role models. Dr. Laura also tackles such cultural and societal concerns as abortion, modern sexuality, drug and alcohol use, violence, accountability, and a child's right to privacy.
Parenthood by Proxy is a passionate and provocative summation of the perils of parenting and a road map to safety for America's families.
