Synopsis

(Edited by Rose Benz Ericson) Can affluent parents resist the pressures to make their children's lives too easy -- thereby ruining their work ethic? This book says "yes" -- but it's not easy. Read about a few wealthy families who are bucking the tide to raise the kind of purposeful young citizens our society so desperately needs. Learn what psychologists, educators, researchers and wealth counselors say about the traditional practices and values that help bolster a family's immunity to our society's destructive obsessions. The Affluenza Antidote is intended to stimulate awareness of the damaging effects of too much money and too little tough love, and to encourage younger parents to help restore the values that made previous generations great. A portion of proceeds from the sales of this book will benefit not-for-profit organizations that support families and children.
