Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If there ever was an owner's manual for your kids, Laying Down the Law is it. When I read Ruth Peters, it's like she's channeling my parents and grandparents with commonsense, logical advice for today's parent."—Al Roker, NBC's Today show

"Dr. Peters really understands the challenges that today's parents face— and how to help.
