In a society beset by overindulgence, our children are paying too high a price for excesses of wealth and freedom. On the one hand we have created a plethora of options that often bewilder and confuse our young people, and at a minimum distract them. How often have you asked yourself what direction this generation is going? Our children today seem unable to focus and make positive, life-affirming decisions. Meanwhile, on the other hand, we parents are so busy with our lifestyles, that we leave our children to make product, activity, relationship, career, and lifestyle choices on their own. They have more choices to filter, at an earlier age, and yet we parents can’t seem to find the time to mentor them effectively. Out of guilt, we give our children too many material things, or we give them too much freedom to make choices they are not mentally or emotionally equipped to make. In his many years of counseling, Dr. Fogarty has seen this disturbing trend. And yet, he contends there are powerful tools parents can use to stem the tide of overindulgence and find the balance between unconditional love and unlimited freedom.
