I can't recommend this book highly enough! I came from a home where the parents were no doubt trying, but had very few parenting skills. We were basically hit and told how awful we were. I came away from my home only knowing what I DIDN'T want to do as a parent, but having no idea what TO do.
I love children and always wanted a big family. And I feel like I've read just about every parenting book out there, in my search to learn how to be a kind, loving, yet in control parent. This book showed me HOW to be the kind of parent that I have always yearned in my heart to be. It not only tells you what you should be doing (along with the research that proves that THIS is the most effective way to raise children!), but shows you step-by-step EXACTLY how to do it.
I give this the highest recommendation that a book could ever receive. Five stars aren't enough! Your children will love you for following the guidelines in this book, and you'll love Glenn Latham for how happy your family will become.
