I am in line with mostly everything Dobson says, although I must say I was a bit discouraged to read about all of the negatives we are up against in the first half of the book! I guess I would rather remain in denial...but I know I needed to read about those issues! The book definitely made me think about how I will raise my son, and that I definitely need to first rely on God to guide us as parents. I thought the comments on schooling were interesting. They challenged my thoughts about what path we would take for our son, and I look forward to doing more research. In terms of writing...I felt Dobson went on unnecessary tangents throughout several chapters...as if he rushed through writing this book. Even so, I am still a James Dobson fan, mainly for the work he has done to help families.
