Publisher's Summary

Unfortunately, children don’t come with operating instructions, so raising even the most compliant kids can sometimes be disconcerting. Acknowledging that some youngsters are more challenging than others, Dr. James Dobson offers real help with establishing parent-child relationships, maintaining sanity, and banishing guilt. A Doctor of Philosophy in child development and the founder of the international organization Focus on the Family, Dr. Dobson has become one of America’s most respected family therapists. Drawing on a landmark study of 35,000 parents, as well as on his experience as both a professional and a parent, the author offers valuable advice on every aspect of parenting. This insightful best-seller offers parents the opportunity to find fulfillment in every stage of parenting, from bringing children into the world to letting them go. Narrator John McDonough’s reassuring voice inspires a healthy dose of parenting confidence.

Very Good Read

I strongly recommend this book for any parent and to maybe read it over again when feeling discouraged as a parent.....we aren't perfect, this book however encourages you to keep working and points out how "normal" it is to feel defeated, but to never loose heart. The only negative is if you have read other Parenting Books by Dr. Dobson, such as, "The Strong Willed Child" & "Bringing Up Boys", it does repeat some of the same stories/examples. But they can always be reiterated!
