By Saleem Rana

Lon Woodbury from Parent Choices for Struggling Teens, a radio show hosted on L.A. Talk Radio, recently interviewed Dr. Ron Taffel who is a leading expert on how to raise children. The interview focused on the ideas in Ron's book, "Childhood Unbound: Authoritative Parenting for the 21st Century."

About the Author

A leading authority on child raising methods, Dr. Ron Taffel is the Chair of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, and he also has his own private practice in New York city. He is the father of two children. He has been interviewed on numerous top television shows and has written many articles on parenting, as well as authored 8 books, including, "Childhood Unbound: Definitive Parenting for the 21st Century.".

The Story Behind "Childhood Unbound: Authoritative Parenting for the 21st Century."

Ron shared his view that youngsters are different now compared to previous generations because they reside in a new world where technology has drastically changed life as we used to know it. He believes this change took place toward the last decade of the last century. The result is that children are now much more open and candid, which, interestingly enough, is what parents prefer to having their children keep secrets from them.

He also talked about how parents must ensure that they are not relegated to the role of a second family, the first being the peer group and popular culture. Actually, children still long to stay in touch with their parents, but parents often don't give them undivided attention because the parents are too busy multitasking or thinking of other things. It's a misconception, the author said, that youngsters don't wish to communicate with parents.

His popular book, "Childhood Unbound: Authoritative Parenting for 21st Century," is designed to assist parents from using anachronistic parenting ideas and it offers much good advice on some of the best ways to be a good parent in a new age of swift technological development and perplexing social changes.
