I started this book with great hope. The beginning spoke to me, but then the book just felt too long, too complicated, too many things I was supposed to remember in the long run and too many things in there.

I appreciated the sections on learning to be in the moment, accepting things as they are, and I love how it had that note of positive parenting and not necessarily doing the same old.

However, this wasn't the book for me. It didn't speak to my heart the way other books have.

That said, pick it
As someone who didn't have the greatest of conflict resolution training as a child, this book was a wonderful reminder that healthy family systems are accessible at any time. Provides 17 keys to peaceful parenting, tips for raising emotionally intelligent kids, and easy steps for taking on conflict resolution - particularly between siblings and dealing with sibling rivalry - which was not a strong point in our home growing up. Good home resource.
I found this book to be super helpful, but it was geared for people with children that were all 5 and above mostly. It had lots of great tips in it. I would love to do a book group on this book so that it will help me to learn from others and keep me on target with it. It has a great daily lesson plan almost in the back to share with the kids and to work on with your spouse.
I'm constantly reading this book. It's one of the most useful and applicable parenting books I have read. Full of relevant insights and realistic ideas for developing a more peaceful family life.
Waaaay too self-helpy and preachy for me. Some good reminders in there, but overall, this is a book I could have passed on.
I'm not going to finish this book. I find the examples lame and the general style of writing nauseating. sorry.
