Publisher's Summary

Parenting can be such an overwhelming job that it's easy to lose track of where you stand on some of the more controversial subjects at the playground (What if my kid likes to rough house - isn't this ok as long as no one gets hurt? And what if my kid just doesn't feel like sharing?). In this inspiring and enlightening book, Heather Shumaker describes her quest to nail down "the rules" to raising smart, sensitive, and self-sufficient kids. Drawing on her own experiences as the mother of two small children, as well as on the work of child psychologists, pediatricians, educators and so on, in this book Shumaker gets to the heart of the matter on a host of important questions.

knowledge is power

when dealing with a non articulate screaming toddler it's hard to know what to do. it's hard to understand what they're thinking how they're developing we are all not all child psychologist and yet we have children. I love this book for its ideas on how to help Kids. On letting go of filling their lives with activities and learning or else they'll be left behind thoughts. it helps you find places where you can be loose and where you need to tighten up that will best help your kids. the author openly admits that this isn't the perfect set of rules but a good guidelines to start with. Just take what you want and leave the rest.
