This is a book about parents, power, and children and, in particular, the legitimacy of parents’ power over their children. It is also a book about political philosophy itself, as it examines the role of this discipline when we evaluate the legitimacy of parents’ power. If parents have power, and if they exercise power over their children, what makes some power relations legitimate and others illegitimate, and how do we justify these conclusions?
