The takeaway is this:

I read this book to add more knowledge to my therapy and wellness coaching. Amazed.

It is very well written. A surprise benefit I forgave my father during the process of reading this book.

One of the best books on what to do to make your marital life better! It has very simple steps, and clarifies a lot of points that get lost during busy life responsibilities... It is a must read for anyone who thinks something was wrong in their lives... I really loved this one

“Most people in the psychology field believe that if we do not get a child to bond at a deep level with someone by age eight, we have lost them. We can never recover them and teach them empathy. Never.” 0 likes
“Why? Because we are setting up little boys to be emotionally unavailable men and, at the same time, setting up little girls to be emotionally unhappy women. How? By teaching our little girls that they are princesses. Special. And that someday their prince will come. Not only will their prince come, but he will be strong, smart, romantic and will take care of their every princess need and desire. Little princesses are taught the fantasy that they will be whisked away by the man of their dreams. That man being, of course, someone who will meet all of her needs — especially emotionally. That man will have undying love and devotion for the princess. And, by the way, no needs of his own.” 0 likes
