Hold On to Your Kids: Dr Gordon Neufeld
But a Canadian developmental psychologist says that peers are now replacing parents - and they shouldn't.
Dr. Gordon Neufeld is the author of Hold On To Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More than Peers.
In it, he talks about the dangers of what he calls "peer orientation", and gives parents advice on how to reestablish their influence.
The book became a bestseller a few years ago, and it has just been updated and reissued.
Dr. Neufeld joins Elizabeth Robertson from our studio in Vancouver.
