Product Description

There’s a new set of 3Rs for our kids—respect, responsibility, and resilience—to better prepare them for life in the real world. Once developed, these skills let kids take charge, and let parents step back, to the benefit of all. Casting hover mothers and helicopter parents aside, Vicki Hoefle encourages a different, counter-intuitive, yet much more effective, approach to parenting: for parents to sit on their hands, stay on the sidelines—even if duct tape is required!

Witty and straight-shooting, Duct Tape Parenting entertains as it informs parents how to do less in order to raise more confident, capable children.

Includes a foreword by Alex Kajitani, the 2009 California Teacher of the Year and Finalist National Teacher of the Year.


“Vicki Hoefle delivers a useful guide that looks to nurture strong and meaningful relationships between parents and children. . . . Her tone conveys an understanding of the challenges facing parents as well as the importance of doing what is right for children.”
      —Publishers Weekly

“A challenging idea for many parents, but it is an effective teacher nonetheless.”
      —Library Journal
