"At last! A book for our people! Educando Hijos Exitosos is useful for parents who wish to raise their children by establishing positive relationships at home and in a multicultural community.

"This guide has made an indelible impression . . . It is reader-friendly and effective in sharing advice without predicating . . . (This Spanish translation) is indispensable, as the Hispanic population continues to grow exponentially in this country. My congratulations to Dr. Gallagher and Dr. Webb for writing a document that reaches out to parents. This guide should also be available at offices of health service providers such as pediatricians, medical doctors, and psychologists, as it offers sound and timely advice for the general public."--(Jaime Castellano, Ph.D., Phoenix, AZ, Education Program Specialist, Office of English Language Acquisition Services, Arizona Department of Education, and Adjunct Professor, College of Education, Arizona State University-West)
