Where does The Real Purpose of Parenting rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This book is one of the shortest but also the most profound books on audible!
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Real Purpose of Parenting?
The stories that he tells hit so close to home. The entire book was full of memorable moments. I will not forget any of the hypothetical family characters.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The narration takes a while to get used to. Dr. Dembo has a strong Midwest accent. He does a great job of narrating once you get used to the accent. I'm glad I kept listening!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The story of the family whose oldest son is in law school, the story of the girl who asked for more time with her parents, and the overall concept of a persons identity vs. their family's expectations of them were all very moving. They helped me understand, as a 26 yr old, why I felt so lost and unhappy, and how to confront those feelings without 'going underground.'
Any additional comments?
Please write more books Dr. Dembo!!!!!!!!!!!

This book will change your life. It explains how parents want children to be the same as them, held up to their standards. But it's much more than that. It's a whole different way of looking at the world. It changed my world view. This book is a must read. Not only that, the author is entertaining and tells about case studies which really livens up the book. It's excellent.

I got lost of ideas and inspiration from this book that I would recommend to not just to a parents but everybody.
Complicated topics explained clearly with real life examples. Also touching. Possibly the most useful book I've ever read. Thank you Dr. Dembo.
