Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Hudson Valley News, 2/26/14
“Learn when you are overindulging, and how to stop.”

InfoDad.com, 3/13/14
“That the authors focus on the prescriptive rather than simply reciting the results of their research is a significant strength…There are enough ideas here so that if one does not work, it is possible to try another, and then another.”

Mid-Ohio Valley Parent, April 2014
“A helpful resource for parents with all ages of children…A book that can grow with your kids.”

San Francisco Book Review, 4/29/14
“This book is so incredibly relevant in today’s culture; every parent would benefit from reading it. Recommended for everyone who has anything to do with children!”

Work & Family Life, May 2014
How Much is Too Much deals with every aspect of overindulgence: what it is, why we do it and how it affects our children—as well as the impact on us as adults if we were overindulged ourselves as a child…This important book will help us learn how this is a threat to the next generation and the ways we can change and do things differently.”

BroadwayWorld.com, 5/13/14
“An easy-to-understand guide, supported by science, that helps parents and professionals to not only recognize the problem but provides sound advice.”
