About Our Research 

The overindulgence project began in 1996 with the mission of studying the relationship between childhood overindulgence and subsequent adult problems and parenting practices. To date, we (David Bredehoft, Jean Illsley Clarke, Connie Dawson and our research assistants) have completed ten studies and currently have additional studies in process investigating overindulgence involving a combined 3,531 participants to date.

How Much is Enough? is a book about overindulgence written for parents, parent-educators, and other professionals. This book is unique because it is written for parents while supported by our research findings.
