I would not recommend this book to anyone. If you were confused before reading this book she will only confuse you more. You will get a few take aways from it if you can get that far into it. She was very repetitive and back and forth. The author cold heartedly gives you advice against your son/daughter and appears very selfish. I don't agree with mostly everything she attempted to say. I would not advise you to waste your time on this book.
