Summary
"Doing Right by Children examines our changing views on the obligations of parenthood and considers a number of questions. What characteristics are desirable in a parent? What family structure best serves the interests of children? Is childhood innocence worth preserving? What should our goals be in raising children? When is someone morally justified in bringing a child into existence? The answers to these questions will be of interest not just to parents, but to anyone who laments the decline of childhood in America."--Jacket
