We loved this book enough to excerpt from it in the December issue and on our website. Nancy lives in the real world of parenting, and communicates the value of acceptance clearly and effectively.

This was a truly wonderful book that really helped you realize your child's potential with their inborn characteristics. You were able to identify your child's 9 inner traits as well as your own inner traits. By understanding the traits you can better understand your child and where you conflict with each other. This was also a book on loving the child you've got and not the one you wish to have. Wonderful book!
