Summary The author "...shows why pushy, hovering 'tiger parents' and permissive 'jellyfish parents' actually hinder self-motivation. She proposes a powerful new parenting model: the intelligent, playful, highly social dolphin. Dolphin parents focus on maintaining balance in their children's lives to gently, yet authoritatively guide them toward lasting health, happiness, and success"-- Front dust jacket flap.
