    Even though American parents respect children, value privacy, and involve in children’s learning an activities, Gross-Loh pointed out that there are different parenting styles out of borders that American parents can learn from so as to raise a whole child in the globally setting. Based on various researches, opinion from professional, and her personal experiences, she discussed whether co-sleeping is malicious according to AAD or parents should regulate  sleep according to children’s needs; the life style that parents should shape children’s desire and wants  instead of  pampering materialism; the importance of educating children how to eat by eating together with children, giving enough time for eating, and giving them right food choices to choose; whether emphasis on self-esteem is beneficial or harmful and the denotation of a growth mindset; advocating belief in a child rather than hovering or over-involvement;  the advantages of engaging in nature play and unstructured play; improving the quality of  academic learning and  endorsing schools meet the needs of children; and modeling kindness and raising responsibility in order to build up children’s compassion, empathy, and courtesy.
    This book is not only for the parents of American but also for parents around the world to acknowledge the parenting styles. If you want to raise a whole child, go for it!

    I¿m so glad to see that Ms Gross-Loh has done this kind of book.

    I’m so glad to see that Ms Gross-Loh has done this kind of book. Know that I just started to read it, but I know its going to be worth the read and the buy in the long run. Decided to buy my own copy instead of borrowing it from the library. Again, this is like a book that I have read earlier this summer, The Business of Baby: What Doctors Don’t Tell You, What Corporations Try to Sell You, and How Put Your Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Baby Before Their Bottom Line, Jennifer Margulis. At the same time have mentioned as well. In which both of these books and their authors like another book that I have read Homeward Bound: Why Women are Embracing the New Domesticity, Emily Matchar. Have also mentioned this book.

    Think thats it for now.

    Thank you, again, in advance.
