Publisher's Summary

In this book, subtitled What We Can Do for America's Beleaguered Moms and Dads, two different parents with different backgrounds of their own, one black, one female, come together to assay what they describe in the prologue as the world's antagonism toward parents and parenting.

"One of the best-kept secrets of the last 30 years," Hewlett and West aver, "is that big business, government, and the wider culture have waged a silent war against parents, undermining the work that they do. Some of the hostility has been inadvertent, and some of it has been deliberate. But whatever forces are responsible for the war against parents, one thing is for sure: parents have been left twisting in the wind by a society intent on other agendas."
