Vor dem Hintergrund unserer gesellschaftlichen scenario, die gekennzeichnet ist durch Globalisierung, Beschleunigung und Unsicherheiten, ist jeder mehr denn je auf sich selbst zurückgeworfen. Es gibt kaum noch institutionellen Rückhalt, weil es dem Zeitgeist entsprechend ist, alle normativen Setzungen zu zersetzen. Gegen die Unsicherheit setzen die Autoren normative Eckpfeiler: Autorität, Verantwortung, Grenzen. Sie sind davon überzeugt, ohne solche Eckpfeiler kann keine Erziehung gelingen. Sie halten es zudem für notwendig, dass jeder in den unterschiedlichen Feldern der Erziehung Tätige, ob Eltern, Pädagogen, Psychologen, sich jedes Schrittes in der Erziehung bewusst ist. Das Buch gibt bewusst keine Erziehungsratschläge, sondern will durch eine Kombination aus Theorie und Praxis anregen, eine eigene bewusste Haltung zu Erziehungsfragen zu finden und umzusetzen.
