Love That Boy is a uniquely personal story about the causes and costs of outsized parental expectations. What we want for our children-popularity, normalcy, achievement, genius-and what they truly need-grit, empathy, character-are explored by National Journal's Ron Fournier, who weaves his extraordinary journey to acceptance around the latest research on childhood development and stories of other loving-but-struggling parents.
