good and bad

Encouraging if somewhat obvious advice. Main concept figure out whom you would like your kids to be and become that person to lead by example.
I liked Screamfree Parenting better, if only because it relied less on the bible, which to my reading is hardly a positive example for parents.
I started skipping chapters a little more than halfway through in pure disgust.
Good luck to the perseverant.
