WASHINGTON — Suzanne Venker, co-author with Phyllis Schlafly of a forthcoming book, "The Flipside of Feminism," has told an ABC audience that parents actually need to be, well, parents.
Her comments came on yesterday's ABC News Now "Moms Get Real" show.
She said many in America have "moved away" from the role of a parent as an authoritative leader and too many parents are trying to be their children's friends.
"And you now have parents who are actually afraid of their children because they are so coddling and so concerned with their self-esteem that they have lost the ability to parent appropriately," she said.
Her comments came as part of a discussion on the ideas suggested in the book, "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother" by Amy Chua.
Chua's perspective includes that loving a child also means to demand the best they can produce, and that involves hours of homework, study and practice instead of video games, television and play dates. FULL STORY
Any parent with 5 functioning brain cells SHOULD fear their children. They have been empowered to destroy their families on a whim, and CPS is right there to make their fantasies come true.
4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.
5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honorable.
12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
