really liked it
bookshelves: self-help
Read from December 05 to 08, 2010

Quick read with some very hard to read/take passages. I think it might have been better to read "Free Range Kids" after reading this one just to give me some peace of mind. I DO think it is beneficial information and that we DO need to face some hard realities in order to protect against dangers when we can. I will need a refresher when my kids are nearing teen-age for those difficult discussions (although also beneficial for the age they are in now).
Word of advice: read this in little snippets during the day and have something nice and cozy to read at bed-time to clear your mind... I'm probably making this out to be worse than it is but what can I say, I'm a mom.
