4.0 out of 5 stars good, but there is better, December 24, 2008
This review is from: The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness: Five Steps to Help Kids Create and Sustain Lifelong Joy (Paperback)
I found this book to be very good, but I recently found a book which is much better "Positive Pushing" by Dr. Jim Taylor. Both books address pretty much the same topic, but the Positive Pushing book, true to its title, is more postive. It presents a more postive way to help your child grow, and leads to a better balanced child. Positive Pushing does a very good job of pointing out what not to do, as well. Positive Pushing urges you to do more thinking about your child and what is really best for your child. The book makes sure that what you are working toward is actually positive, not just seemingly positive but ultimately harmful (or done in a harmful manner). The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness is good, but please check out Positive Pushing. (Despite the name, pushing isn't quite accurate, it's more like positive guidance.)
