Education in a Narcissistic Nation is useful because it forces the reader to think; to think about why students behave the way they do, but, more importantly, to think about what can be done to address the problems educators face as a result of an increasingly self-indulgent society. Mason and Brackman don't just tell the reader how today's students act, but they provide real-world solutions to the problems their actions create, making this book a useful tool to teachers everywhere. -- Tom Dunn, Superintendent, Troy City Schools
This text is on time and needed for our teachers and educational systems to begin developing new educational and behavioral interventions. This text clearly identifies the change in personality structure that has led to our schools increase in violence and disruptive behaviors. I am hopeful that teachers and community organizers will read this text and get motivated to plan and implement changes that are indicated. I applaud Mason and Brackman for this work. -- Curtis Gillespie, Therapist
Mason and Brackman have hit a critical nerve in the educational landscape. At a time when our educational system is being challenged by ever changing social and emotional norms, they bring to the forefront issues that are paramount to the future of education and family virtues in America. The significance of these issues cannot be ignored and expedience to finding solutions is imperative if we expect our students to compete in the globally expanding world. -- Mark A. Klopfenstein, retired principal, Springfield, Ohio
Chad Mason and Karen Brackman have put a face and a name to a growing problem facing school systems and today's educators: all too many American children have come to expect adults to cater to their individual desires. One contributing factor for this narcissistic mindset is the breakdown of traditional family values. Overindulging, micromanaging parents not only prohibit their sons and daughters from reaching their full potential, they place an undue stress on those professionals entrusted with facilitating their children's educations. The 'protectionist' mindset, with the child serving as the center of the family unit, has fostered thousands of me-first, self-centered children with many negative consequences for society and the American family. This book will serve as a helpful resource for those currently in the educational ranks, as well as those engaged in teacher/administrator training. Its case studies illuminate the difficulties inherent to working with narcissistic children, but more importantly, this book stresses the importance of taking on the challenge. -- John K. Rosemond, family psychologist; nationally syndicated columnist; author of The Diseasing of America's Children
