People who wouldn’t dream of blaming parents for a child’s asthma or diabetes are often quick to blame bad parenting for a child’s hyperactivity, depression, or school phobia. The parents, in turn, often blame their children, believing that they’re lazy or rebellious. Even worse, the children with these psychological problems often blame themselves, convinced that they’re just bad kids. In It’s Nobody’s Fault, esteemed child and adolescent psychiatrist Dr. Harold S. Kopelwicz at last puts an end to this pointless–and erroneous–cycle of blame and helps parents get the help they need for their troubled children.
