I think this is my favorite parenting book on how to become a really good parent! Kevin is a parent of 5 children and has some great, practicle advice on how to love and disapline in a firm but loving manner. Lots of examples and life situations. Great for preschool through to adult. Now just need to remember to more consistently follow his advice!

I have read peices of the book as I have need them. I really, really like it! Now that I think about it...thought maybe I would like to go back & reread peices. I just really enjoy Kevin Leman's advice and outlooks...it's reality.
