Recently I went out and bought a bunch of parenting books to help fill in the gaps. The general books seemed to be written for mothers and I found them to be largely unhelpful. The books written for dads dealt a little too much with how I felt, instead of how to help my child.
This book is written in short chapters that deal with specific and relevant issues in practical, easy to understand ways. It poses important questions and then actually answers them with helpful tips that I found to be very easy to apply to my child-rearing techniques.
i highly recommend 'raising happy, confident kids!'
This book is more of a comprehensive guide to parenting. Much of the content is things I would have done anyway, sort of common sense parenting to those of us who care enough to read a parenting book. Many of the topics, while relavent to parenting, fail to relate back to the confidence issue I was looking for.
Having said that, there are a few good nuggets. My opinion is that this is a book that would best be checked out from a library, and not necessarily purchased for ones frequent reference.
