Format: Paperback
This book has been one of the most wonderful books I have ever read. It simply lists out the basic things a parent should do so that the child turns out to be a confident, responsible, mature and a sensible adult. It slowly and progressively installs in your mind the kind of parenting you should practice to achieve this. It might be repetitive, but in the end would have made your mind the living copy of the contents of this book. DR. Sears, the guru of attachment parenting, has beautifully written this book. A must read for every parent.

Format: Paperback
This book is well researched and very informative, it gives you recommendations, arguments against other forms or parenting and reassurance that a baby not in a routine is perfectly normal, and actually letting your children sleep in your bed with you where they feel secure is perfectly natural, I really like it because there is no, 'one size fits all' approach to parenting and the Sears encourage you to look at your childs individual needs and see how to best meet them and gain a fantastic 'attached' relationship with your child, there is lots of science to back up their ideas and I have felt motivated to change certain aspects of how i parent but also very reassured alot of what has come naturally and that I am doing is right, I have read this book cover to cover and i know I will be reffering to it again and again.

My only negative comment is the quality of the published book its self, when it arrived i thought it must be a second, its been put together cheaply, the front and back cover are a few milimeters shorter than the pages and the quality of the paper is relly poor which i must say I really do dislike as it makes me feel a little ripped off, I like the feel of a good qualiy book it makes reading it more enjoyable.

Very insightful book. Talks about every detail of raising children. Absolutely brilliant. I've already recommended it to my friends. If you are looking for a book that addresses everything from sibling rivalry to day-to-day events of raising children then this is it.
