Abstract: The well-being of our nation's children is a prime responsibility of parents. Too many parents, however, are failing to discharge this responsibility because our society — principally through public policies and middle class mores — is not fostering a family-friendly environment. Meanwhile, economic pressures on parents and popular culture are making the raising of children an ever more challenging task, constituting a profound threat to our common life.
