This was required summer reading for my job, and I think it offered a lot of valuable information. The problem, I think, is that I'm reading it from a teacher's perspective and it seems to be more aimed at parents--I think it would work better for parents. To get the most out of it, you really need to read it with a specific child in mind, and as a teacher I know so many children that I couldn't focus on just one. The result was that I focused on myself as a child, which is one of the things the author says you just can't do when you're considering today's children. I couldn't help it, though. If your kids are having social problems, though, this would be a good one to read to better understand their world.
