"The teaching genius of John Gray comes through....One of the best audio guides available on staying centered and effective as a parent." (AudioFile)
wish i read this when my kids were young. always thought stricked first time obedience was what I needed to achieve but this helped me see raising kids in a different more compassionate way.
I'm a new mom and learned so much from this book. I thought that punishing was the only way to get kids to listen. John Gray gives great tips on how to parent in a loving way that involves negotiation and respect so that your kids won't resent you when they are teens.
Excellent read filled with great tips!!!

Every parent has to read this as it makes a difference in relationship with your child. Nothing to say just 5 star book with loads of examples and advices on bringing up children to live their life at full. I was brought up differently with punisments and other old fashioned stuff which I feel made me nice person but weak in a life. This book will lead you on correct path.

If like me you mirrored the parenting you received and you're just getting nowhere, I strongly suggest to at least read the book or listen to the audiobook. I haven't had time to put it all into practice yet but certainly intend to. Great insight into children's world!
