On and off I used to listen to Dr. Laura, frequently agreeing, but many times not. What I love is that she has an unpopular point of view and she's not going to let social, financial, or industry pressure dilute her message. Yes, she's frequently abrasive; so were many people who have made an impact in the course of events in this world. If you are a parent with young children READ THE BOOK at least it will give you important ideas to agree or disagree with.
before even getting pregnant. And share it with your husband! This
book gives real life problems and practical, common sense solutions
that actually work, as well as how to help combat the mainstream
attitude that children are here for us and for our 'fulfillment' and
pleasure. Parenting is a full time job. Not just a hobby to do in your
free time. This book will be hated by those who are selfish and don't
want to have to take responsibility and sacrifice for the child they
chose to bring into this world.
It's sad that we now need a book to tell us to do what both humans &
animals have been doing naturally for thousands of years, but people
have rejected in recent decades. The facts and the results prove true,
and they're worded straight to the point without a lot of fluff and
filler. I liked the original title better, but my guess is the words
were too big for some peo!ple. I got this one in hardback as soon as
it came out and it's the parenting book I value the most.
"Oh Day care please!!! I get so much socialization!" Give me a break! Tell the kids that are exhausted and worn out from 9-10 hour days in day care, that it's actually better for them than their own parents.Read more ›
