Publisher's Summary

Love That Boy is a uniquely personal story about the causes and costs of outsized parental expectations. What we want for our children - popularity, normalcy, achievement, genius - and what they truly need - grit, empathy, character - are explored by National Journal's Ron Fournier, who weaves his extraordinary journey to acceptance around the latest research on childhood development and stories of other loving-but-struggling parents.

This book answers many questions that I have had all my life

I found that this book to be a eye opener I related to many of of the experiences he talks about in this book with my own family growing up on how my own parents reacted to me. It filled in some holes in my past and help me understand why I am drawn in and relate to artistic kids. Even with one of my grandkids and others that I work with. I highly recommend this book for everyone to read and learn and use
