We're Hurting Our Kids by Robbing Them of Responsibility for Their Actions.
Enochs, James C.
American School Board Journal, v171 n4 p44-45 Apr 1984
Decrying dependence on "helping professionals," the author maintains that people absolved of responsibilities for their actions are willing to give up their independence. Prevalent psychological approaches to parenting and to treating students' behavioral and academic problems are criticized, and the common-sense solution of holding students and teachers accountable is proposed.
