it was ok

I started a long review for this and my computer shut down, it wasn't saved. I will just say that the author is trying to make an argument that is interesting and worth considering, but the building blocks that she uses to make the argument, which are basically behavioral studies, are flawed and culturally specific. Therefore, I personally don't think her argument, which isn't much more than supported personal opinion, holds much weight.

DeAnna, Tatiana and I loved this book. We think it is very well researched and grounded in both science as well as out personal experience raising two very different children.
