Tim Carney

Author & Columnist

Timothy P. Carney is a father of six children, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and a columnist at the Washington Examiner. Tim and his wife, Katie, have raised their family in suburban Maryland and Northern Virginia. Tim grew up with three older brothers in Greenwich Village and later in Pelham, New York. He is the author of Alienated America, The Big Ripoff, and Obamanomics.

In FAMILY UNFRIENDLY: How Our Culture Made Raising Kids Much Harder Than It Needs to Be (Harper; on sale March 19th), Carney blends rigorous sociological and demographic research with timely anecdotal evidence gathered from around the country—including his own experiences as a father of six—to figure out why modern parenting has grown so misguided and what can be done to get back on track. America, he ascertains, has a family-unfriendly culture that makes parenting harder than it should be. And the problem grows from many intertwined roots: our parenting culture, our school culture, our dating and mating culture, work culture, the shape of our communities, and the individualistic and materialistic characters of our culture.
