  • Refreshing and creative

    I really loved this book and appreciated the refreshing and creative approach to parenting and all the things we struggle with as a family. He has lots of great ideas and I loved that he seemed advice and ideas from experts in other fields (no "parenting experts"). He also seems open to exploring new ideas and does not push for one specific agenda. Read this book through my local library, loved it so much I bought my own copy
