Finally a parenting book that says straight up how it is (or how it needs to be!) This should be required reading for new parents. Sometimes we all just nee d a reminder that we are the parent and the world does not need to center around the children! They are a part of the family, but not the only ones in the family who matter. Balance is certainly key. This is a quick fun book that is the sensibility that so many of today's parents need.
