I like that this book is a compilation vs a singular strategy; too often, parenting books rely on the "expertise" of one person, who you get sick of hearing from by chapter 3. This one however, allows you to hear from all different voices and perspectives. It's like a combo magazine and book, and something you can reference throughout the parenting journey. It would make a great gift for a new parent for this reason...it's not something you need to find a new home for after the first year.
I especially liked the chapter on routine and structure (not surprising if you know my personality :)) Some of my favorite highlights overall:
-We call it "parenting" and then we add descriptors: "good," "irresponsible," "attachment," "helicopter," "Free Range." Our mistake, though, is treating this as a noun in the first place.
-Good humans take time.
-Narcissism...is at a historical high among young people in this country...The root is often well-meaning, but also out of self preservation.
-Providing material objects is a quick fix for unhappiness, and when kids are happy, parents are happy
