Alienated America author Timothy Carney returns to the High Noon podcast to discuss his new book, Family Unfriendly: How Our Culture Made Raising Kids Much Harder Than it Needs to Be. Tim lays out how our modern baby bust is more than economic, and instead is propped up by a series of cultural and policy defaults that make life for families much harder and more isolating. Tim and Inez discuss over-scheduled sports, helicopter parenting, and the total collapse of the village it takes to raise a happy and healthy next generation, as well as pragmatic tips and policy changes that would make it easier for moms and dads who feel like they’re on a social ice floe.
