Recommends it for: parents
A collection of "feel-good" stories for parents. The story titled, "I Live With an Alien" made me laugh because it certainly feels like my teenage daughter has become an alien - love her to pieces but she frustrates me at this point in her life!

Some quotes I loved in the book:

"Your child will become what you are; so be what you want them to be." - David Bly p. 90

"There are times when parenthood seems like nothing but feeding the mouth that bites you."
-Peter DeVries p. 231

buku yang membuat saya akhirnya bisa memahami dan menerima segala kekurangan dan kelebihan orang tua saya.karena saya sempat menjadi anak-anak yang baik, kemudian menjadi remaja yang kurang ajar, lalu kemudian saya menemukan buku ini, dan menghasilkan saya yang sekarang ini. amin....

These stories are about the bonds between children and their parents. The most moving of the stories was one in which a mom recounts how she spent the day with her child, unknowing that it would be her daughter's last day of life. Her daughter died tragically that evening.

pengalaman menjadi orang tua yang menghadapi anak2nya, saling mencintai, mendukung satu sama lain, disakiti oleh anaknya sendiri namun tetap mengasihi anaknya lebih dari apapun. bagus nih buat yang pengen jadi ortu.
