Are we the worst parents ever?

Are we the worst parents ever?
Very interesting article from Leonard Sax, author of a book The Collapse of Parenting: we're letting our kids friends take our place.

He proposes that the sharp rise in childhood and teen depression and anxiety and mental illnesses are partly due to parents who spend too little time with their children and let their children spend too much time with their kid friends, leading to children failing to develop confidence, self-esteem and risk-taking skills.
