International authority on child development Gordon Neufeld, PhD, joins forces with bestselling author Gabor Maté, MD, to tackle one of the most disturbing trends of our time: Children today looking to their peers for direction - their values, identity, and codes of behavior. This “peer orientation” undermines family cohesion, interferes with healthy development, and fosters a hostile and sexualized youth culture. Children end up becoming overly conformist, desensitized, and alienated, and being “cool” matters more to them than anything else.

It's probably one of the most important books I've read. Not only does it explain why our culture is headed the direction it is, but it also gives us a way out of the course it's taking us in.
