Highly Recommended for Parents of Young Children

Being a parent is one of the most complex jobs a person can have, and there is no agreed-upon course of study for it. Of the many parenting books out there, I rank this one as a personal favorite. Packed with real-life scenarios that present parenting struggles and show how various parents have solved them, it will be a useful tool for any parent who wants pointers on solving a tough problem or who simply needs to know that they're not alone in their struggles.

From technology to bullying, Garden tackles many issues that children today face, and she does it with a sense of humor that makes the book enjoyable despite its occasionally serious subject matter. Garden also does a great job of acknowledging that children are individuals, and that different techniques may work better when parenting different kids.

Parenting is challenging, and no parent is perfect, but with help from this book, parents may be able to understand their children's needs a little better. An enjoyable, informative read.

Great for parents of young children

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would if they had young children.

What did you like best about this story?

Being a parent is a complicated, messy job and I always enjoy reading on this topic to give me additional tips. Jennifer Garden includes many examples to illustrate her points which adds to the readability of the book.

Any additional comments?

Her information on the left- and right-brained children surprised me and challenged some of the ideas that I have about my children. She discusses childhood fears, the basics of discipline, bullying, and the internet and how each impacts families and their children. Her book is best for parents of young children and could be used as an extra resource when parents are feeling uncertain about a specific topic.
