In Defense of the Family: Raising Children in America Today

Reviewing the relevant research about how children grow, learn, form attachments and develop character and conscience, the author shows how the traditional family is the best setting for individual psychological and emotional development and for bringing up the kind of men and women our democratic society needs.

In a world frenzied with 'expertise' on children and the family, Rita Kramer's In Defense of the Family is like a blessing: humane andd sensible, wise and imaginative--and written with a loving rather than a bureaucratic heart.

In Defense of the Family is a book of great importance...well researched, well written, and infused with good sense and decency.
