This book is uplifting and harmless. I don't think the writing or ideas were particularly captivating or that I had any moments of great inspiration reading it as is the case with some parenting books. I didn't particularly enjoy it. I think it had more philosophical ideas than practical suggestions... or the strategies were so obvious that I didn't feel I came away having learned very much. I do agree with her ideas.

I did check out the book and audio version, the reader on the audiobook has one of those syrupy voices that almost makes me choke and made kind of cheesy material seem super cheesy.

It is a quick, easy read. Even though it really wasn't my favorite, didn't lose a lot of time reading it.
