I haven’t read this book, but I intend to, based solely on the quote below. I’m intrigued.
There are some kids growing up with way too much adversity in their lives and what they need more than anything is protection from that adversity. And then we have other kids, especially kids who grow up in affluence, who just don’t have enough adversity in their lives. I think that is a hard message for parents to hear… In trying to protect them from adversity, we can sometimes be doing more harm than good.
