Product Overview

The Rich Kid Syndrome, by Steve Wolf, takes an original and eye-opening perspective on modern adolescent behavior, addiction, and family relations. Not taking anything away from contemporary psychological or medical understandings of teenage acting-out behaviors, author Wolf boldly goes where few psychologists, sociologists, and drug counselors have gone to acquire a deeper appreciation for why kids misbehave in their teen years. The Rich Kid Syndrome grapples with the threats posed by middle-class culture and the entitlement issues that can manifest in contemporary adolescent conduct. Wolf posits that mental, emotional, and judgmental attitudes stemming from middle-class, ?rich kid.? lifestyles give rise to a fertile ground of toxic, acting-out behaviors like drug addiction and improper risk-taking. Written with families in mind, The Rich Kid Syndrome is a must read for parents ready to throw in the towel, and for professionals who end up with more questions than answers.
