Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: 1960s memes spark radical shift in parenting paradigm

According to Wikipedia, a meme is "an idea ... that spreads from person to person within a culture." A meme is analogous to a mental virus - although not necessarily bad - that "catches on" relatively quickly and usually with significant influence on popular behavior.

The concept was popularized by evolutionary philosopher Richard Dawkins, who proposed that memes are like genes in that they replicate, mutate and respond to selective social pressures.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Children become immune to predictable consequences

This is the third and final installment of my "Wrong Things Experts Have Said (and Still Say)" series. Thus far: I've debunked the myth that a consequence must be delivered immediately in order for a child to make the misbehavior-consequence connection, exposed the detrimental nature of high self-esteem, laid bare the falsehood that behavior modification works on human beings and outed Freud for the fraud that he actually was.
