Kids need strong, confident leadership ... from their parents. That's quite a challenge these days, as they grow up at the speed of light and parents are unsure of their place in the lives of their children. And today's kids live with pressures that previous generations didn't have to face. They grow up with fewer siblings, which mean parents focus their attention more sharply on them. No wonder so many children today are anxious and risk-adverse. But it doesn't have to be this way!
