Essential for a healthy family relationship

The concept Jim unveils is so simple, yet so powerful. Being fully present with another person has become the hardest thing to do with all the technology that surrounds us. We get constantly distracted, which takes away from building a full trustful relationship. Jim takes us back to basics and creates a simple plan to connect again with our children. I am putting his plan in action, and you should try too. Loved this book. Thank you.

Great strategies for improving your relationships.

These are definitely ways to improve your parent child relationship. But it’s not a silver bullet by any means. You can have board meetings and still fail as a parent. Overall, good stuff!

Good book.

Love the ideas. I’m not so interested in the stories. Which it had less of that. But the message did get through. We will be implanting the book into our family.

It really put into perspective what kind of relationship one has with their child. I always felt i spent time with my kids, but after this, I really haven't.
