Description: "Greater Expectations" is the book that exposed the low standards that children are confronted with in our homes, our schools, and throughout our culture. It exploded many of the misconceptions about children and how to raise them, including the cult of self-esteem, "child-centered" learning, and other overly indulgent practices that have been watering down the education and guidance that we are providing our young people. It disclosed how the self-centered ethic is damaging our youth. "Greater Expectations" started America talking about these issues and about how young people need to be provided with challenges and a sense of purpose if we want them to survive and thrive in life.

Provocative and challenging, "Greater Expectations" was a wake-up call, a must-read for anyone concerned about the growing youth crisis in America and what we can do about it.
