There are a million things we want to teach our children, a million things we want them to know, to learn, to remember, specially when they are flying the nest.

I have read lots of books. But the first time I read a book that is only a book of open letters. I must say that this book is really special. The book is written by the author for her adolescent son before he leaves his homeland as an international student.
All the letters are full of love and emotions, the readers can feel it.
I loved the chapter "Dealing with Depression" the most. The book is full of life-long lessons.
I loved how the author had written the whole book in a simpl
