If you aren't up to date on the latest parenting advice, this books is a good place to start. The author basically summarizes the work of other parenting philosophies, and wraps it all together with her own expertise on cultivating happy children. As with all parenting books, you must take it as a buffet - try this and that, but stick with the stuff that works for you and your family. (On a side note, I always appreciate experts who tell their own experiences... especially how they've messed up. I learn just as much from mistakes as I learn from advice, and Ms. Carter has no qualms sharing her failures along with her triumphs.)
