I read the one published in the 1990's, when my children were born, and found it extremely helpful in many areas! I now am going to buy this updated version for a family member who just had a baby!
I bought this book for my daughter-in-law when she was expecting my first grandchild. I also purchased a copy for myself at that time. This most recent purchase was for my niece who is expecting her first child. This book is very informative and a great resource for parents of all ages.
This book covered so much! It is an easy read and is very clear. Helpful to get you thinking about everything but not a substitute for a great class.
The best parenting book ever! It will definitely get you off to the best start possible. Dr. Sears and his wife, Martha, are wonderful, sensitive, very insightful and experienced! This book is one of my treasures. It has given me the ideas and insight I needed to have a beautiful relationship with my children right from the start! I have a child in college and a 13 year old. William and Martha Sears teach parents how to instill the kind of trust and mutual respect in the parent-child relationship that is necessary for real obedience to occur and true unconditional love to be enjoyed by the child...even when parents are not perfect. :)
