"David Code's book does a great service for families, providing insights that promise better health for our kids. He sets out to teach parents, in a compassionate and accessible way, how their stress may affect their children's health, without laying on blame or guilt. David's book is a great way to get the message to parents, starting a dialogue that absolutely needs to begin now."

David Code is 'right on the money' with his analysis and conclusions about how to keep children emotionally, and hence physically, healthy. David correctly points out that stress carries over from parent to child. As physicians, we often see over-involved parents creating unhealthy parent-child dynamics. This book is a gift to couples by teaching them how to raise happier children and at the same time, increase their passion for each other.

Format: Kindle Edition
The effect of stressed parents on their children has been in the news lately so this book is a timely exploration of both the pre-natal and post-natal effects of parental stress upon children. Dave Code (an old college friend of mine), does a fantastic job of breaking down many, many complex studies done on the effects of stress. He then translates the (often distressing) results of these studies into clear action items for parents. I was fascinated by the book's description of how helicopter parenting is bad for kids' health. It's interesting how society has changed, because helicopter parenting simply wasn't possible in the past when 4+ kids were the norm and moms - who lacked modern "conveniences" like washing machines and grocery stores -- were much busier simply keeping their families alive and fed. For me, the book reinforced the importance of not only family time but the importance of reaching out to friends and neighbors and making time for more socializing -- and just plain fun -- in our communities. My favorite quote: "If I could wave my magic wand and reduce the stress of today's parents, I would give them a glass of wine, a friend, and an Italian village square to go socialize in every evening." Italian villages aren't in my immediate future but I will make an effort to sit outside with my neighbors and a glass of wine while we watch the kids play.

I'm sure everyone has heard the expression "stress kills", but what most of us fail to realize is the damaging effects our stress can have on a child's upbringing. David Code's book explains how a stress free house can exponentially help a child's development. As the father of four kids, I can't help but wonder why some children act one way while others act another. Kids Pick Up On Everything helped in answering this question.

This book has been an eye-opener for me, and reminds us to put our marriage first if we truly want a solid family unit. I hope I will be able to 'walk the walk' from the author's insight. Thank you, David Code for sharing your knowledge, experience and insight!

David Code, a friend of mine, gave me an advance look at his new book, and i'm really glad he did. I found it to be very perceptive about family dynamics in the strapped-for-time modern era. It's also refreshingly upbeat about what parents can do to keep life's daily stresses from oppressing their kids and dissolving their marriages.

David does an admirable job of clearly spelling out the significance of recent research about stress, and then thoughtfully connects that research to his ideas about how families can create a more relaxed home environment. I also give him kudos for offering solutions that don't seem to fall into the "overparenting" category. Considering that this is largely a book about stress, the advice David gives is encouragingly...relaxing.
