Hold On to Your Kids
- Why Parents Need to Matter More Than Peers
- Written by: Gordon Neufeld
- Narrated by: Gabor Maté, Daniel Mate
- Length: 13 hrs and 32 mins
In Hold On to Your Kids, Dr. Neufeld and Dr. Maté explore the phenomenon of peer orientation: the troubling tendency of children and youth to look to their peers for direction - for a sense of right and wrong, for values, identity and codes of behavior. But peer orientation undermines family cohesion, poisons the school atmosphere, and fosters an aggressively hostile and sexualized youth culture. It provides a powerful explanation for schoolyard bullying and youth violence; it is an escalating trend that has never been adequately described or contested.
Truly life changing.

So much wisdom
Fantastic book that every parent and teacher should read or listen to!
There is so much to learn that I plan on listening to it again real soon. Wish I had heard this stuff a decade ago.
