I don't have much parenting experience yet, and haven't read many parenting books, but I think this book will become one of the most valuable and helpful books I will ever find to help me become a better parent. I think that feeding our children is a prime trap for becoming too controlling or exercising unrighteous dominion, and we may not even recognize it as such. This book certainly helps point out the warning signs, offers solutions, and is fun to read as well. The principles taught can also be applied to aspects of life not related with feeding, and I think they fit well with gospel teachings too. If it is not too presumptuous, I think it matches quite well the parenting style of our Father in Heaven: provide opportunities for learning and experience, but always preserve the principle of agency. Eating, like salvation, is an individual matter.
