really liked it
Recommended for: any (future) parent
Read in September, 2007

I've been reading this book for my "explore anger" class. Lakeside offers this class for Act 48 credit. This is a very well researched and eye-opening book. It reveals how important considerate care and nurture is to a child's first few years of life (including the 9 months in the womb).
Basic gist: Have kids while you're married (though don't marry a crazy person), don't drink/do drugs while prego, and love your kids - then they'll be 75% less likely to be involved in a violent crime.

peg It's always great when you find scientific research that proves that Grandma's advise was on target after all:)
