Description

In order to create a more secure world for children and their parents, Anne Alstott argues, we must fundamentally change the way we think about parents' obligations to children-and about society's obligations to parents.

Drawing on the same innovative thinking that propelled her and Bruce Ackerman's influential work The Stakeholder Society, Alstott proposes a solution both pragmatic and controversial. She outlines two unsentimental proposals intended toimprove parents' economic options while respecting every individual's own choices about how best to combine paid work and child-rearing.

Rejecting both state paternalism and easy libertarianism, Alstott's proposals are bold and unapologetic in their implications.
