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.

Great book by Dr. Dobson!

Great book by Dr. Dobson! The narrator was very good except for mispronouncing "Danae" (Da-nay).
