This book provides no concrete means of parenting. It is not a manual but rather a means of inspiring parents to take an active role in the family. Boteach uses conversations he has had with his family as a means of conveying the ideas of this book. His methods are more about helping a child discover himself and become the best person he/she can be rather than a disciplanarian's handbook. While many parents are looking for concrete means of parenting and discipline (Super Nanny, etc), this book takes the tact that we need to act as heros in our own children's lives. Inspire them to our values and ideals by our actions rather than do as I say, not as I do. Boteach is probative with his dealings with his children rather than shoot first ask questions later and he admits his own failings as a parent. The other thing the reader must know is that Boteach is a rabbi. While many of his ideas can exist without being religious, most of his examples rely on his religious background.

Mmy child looked at me like I was cray and said mom I know. I swear if we had a sexual chat they would cry. They are almost 17 what do I do when they do not want to talk.

Agree with Kristin. Wonderful life lessons to teach your children through inspiration and example.

This book was just ok. He shared lots of conversations that he has had with his children but no real steps on how to implement his ideas. These conversations were ones I would not have with my children-many were over the top and silly. I found myself rolling my eyes more often than not. I also found the last chapter offensive. Most of ideas are common sense for the average parents. For parents who are overly religious this is probably a great choice for your family. I love his show on TV but could have spent time playing with my children instead of reading 10 Conversations.
