If you're a good, relatively healthy single mom who is looking for new insights and understanding for raising a son, this is NOT the book for you. I might say this book is for moms who are in survival mode and barely coping, but even that would be a stretch. With advice like "Don't compare him unfavorably with neighbors or relatives" and "Pay attention to what he is doing and let him know you are proud of the good things he does".....um....yeah...I'd say it's more for moms lacking even the most basic parenting skills. The tone of the book is patronizing and annoying, ending with "I hope this book has convinced you that you can be a single parent and raise a son successfully. I know you can." Really? Because if you actually thought this book was useful, I'd have my doubts. I typically share my books with friends or family or donate them. This one, I'm throwing in the garbage so I don't expose anyone to the drivel within.

I have to confess that Dr. Passley is my therapist. As a divorced, single mother I had lots of problems when I first came to him. Because I was so out of control of my life I also suffered from depression and anxiety. Dr. Passley's advice on how to take control of my home was instrumental in helping me to get out of my depression and feel empowered and able to function. Instead of just telling me that I need to discipline my children (which is what everyone else would say) he gave me the specific steps to take and even warned me on how my child would rebel at every stage. He encouraged me to stick with it. At the time, I had a very angry, lazy 17 yr old and a 5 yr old who was not only out of control but would never sleep through the night. I was so tired and defeated that I had literally given up. After one year of working with Dr. Passley, my life has been transformed. My eldest son is now 18 and just graduated from the Air Force Basic Training. This is the kid that I never thought could even keep a job at Pizza Hut. My youngest is now 6, sleeps all night, is doing great in Kindergarten. Although he is still a very active kid, he has learned how to obey. People who know us comment on how much more calm he is. Before seeing Dr. Passley, my life centered around going to work and taking care of my children. Now, I have friends and a social life and take time for myself. And my kids are doing much better for it! Dr. Passley really knows what he is talking about and has plenty of clinical experience to back up his ideas. If you are a single mother and are overwhelmed by the seemingly inexplicable behavior of your sons, then please, get this book.

It's a great book, and actually written by my current professor. I have witnessed his outlook and demeanor in life, and the way he describes acting in the book is a true and tested way to manage children as a single mother. It may not get very complicated, but the points brought out here are a great starting point.

this book is full of biased information from limited resources. additionally, the information presented is condescending and not well organized. if you need this much help, you're probably not a very good parent to anyone by any standard. otherwise, you're just paying for common sense in book form.
