A must listen, to make parenting enjoyable.

I bought a printed copy of this book when I had my first son and never read it fully. He’s three years now and I enjoyed listening to this audio book. Everything in this book resonates so well with what we shouldn’t have done this last three years and I am happy that I’ve found these secrets to raising happy kids not very late. I highly recommend this and my sincere thanks to the authors and all who made it possible, including the Audible team 👍

Crystalizes what one intuitively knows is true

This (audio) book expresses and crystalizes factors that underpin the development of happy, confident and resilient kids (who grow up well-adjusted to be the same kind of adults). It brings to the forefront what we sometimes "intuitively know to be true" but yet cannot conceptualize it sufficiently to put it into words, actions or practice. Extremely helpful and for me, contains a number of "oh yea" (not necessarilly "ah ha") moments. Great listen and I will be embrace the practicalities of this approach with my two boys, eight and three.
