I had to read this book as a class assignment for a communications course. We were told to ignore that fact that it was a book on parenting. The topic of "parenting" was not our learning focus. This book really had an impact on my life. I gained tremendous insight on how I was parented, how I parented my child, and how I want to interact with my grandchildren.Was this review helpful?
