A Tip for Parents From Canada’s Most Controversial Psychologist

Today’s parents make a great deal of terrible mistakes. It’s not entirely our fault. We have been deprived of much of what traditional wisdom should have been able to bring us.

Consider the #metoo movement. Ask yourself, would any of these incidences and accusations have occurred if people in Hollywood gave a moment’s consideration to the notion of propriety or just simple standard sexual mores. The answer is pretty clearly not, or at least not as often. In traditional western cultures, men and women had a number of institutional protections from one another — and from the dangers of sex. Men and women lived apart from each other for the most part. This was not an accident. It made it difficult for men to abuse women in secret, and it made it difficult for women to wrongly accuse men of abuse.

Courts cannot adjudicate cases like this, he said/she said cases, which is why we have that phrase as a common one in law. It was the job of traditional social rules to prevent these types of cases from reaching the courts, who will always have to use guesswork to adjudicate them.

Modern parenting has suffered from a similar breakdown in traditional wisdom. Today, children are raised very loosely, with laws in place that actually make parents afraid of their children. This is wrong and dangerous. As a consequence, parents try to placate their children rather than teach them through tough love and strict care.

Here, Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson describes the problem as only he can.
