I'm not sure if that Scarpetti fellow below really read this book. I Googled his other reviews and found he wrote about weird things. He doesn't seem like the parenting type who would be interested in a good book such as this one.
Dr. Donahue imparts the importance of family time and rituals as tools that build the security children need to be able to imagine, explore and create. He reminds us that our role as parents is not to schedule our children's days but to teach them the skills they need to succeed: independent thinking, self-reliance, a good work ethic and consideration.
The book is written in an empathetic voice, with an understanding of the anxiety felt by parents who are trying to prepare their children for today's competitive world. There are several examples of well-intended parents who would like to slow down but are afraid to do less because they think their children will fall behind. It's a must read for those of us who feel overextended and need some sensible guidance.
