We have this book sitting on our family room shelf, and I've never read it before! Here I've been wondering what books I could be reading and learning a lot from...I should start with what's on our own bookshelf!

While I think that some of his views are a bit on the extreme side, Rick Boyer does an excellent job of shedding light on how damaging forced socialization can be to our children. Live life, and the social aspects of it will come naturally!
While I dont share his american patriotism[Im english:] and I dont agree with all his views expressed -it was still a really good book that deals with how children learn social skills .
