Balance! I’ve been looking for a book that could help me as a parent bring balance to my (and my child’s) life. The author’s ideas about maintaining balance in our parenting and also helping our kids develop their own sense of balance in their lives is so helpful. It’s also helpful to get some advice on how to preserve yourselves as a couple. Having kids can test a marriage and Noah’s advice on maintaining balance as a couple was very helpful. Great book.

Honestly, I thought this was going to be just another parenting book that would make me feel bad by pointing out all of the things I’m doing wrong. This is not that kind of book. It’s got a nice, respectful way of speaking to parents and helping them build their own set of skills for being better parents. It’s helped me see that some of the things my kids do are not actually because of my bad parenting but because of their temperament. There’s lots of work for me to do, but it’s nice that there’s a book like this that helps parents understand everything that’s involved.

A great parenting resource. Helpful, clear and specific to many of the problems parents face today. It has helped me tackle some very challenging issues in our family. I especially like the chapter on balancing empathy and authority in parenting.

The nice thing about this book is that there’s a lot in there for parents. When your kid is having problems, it means that there are things for you as the parent to work on. This book seems at first glance to focus on the kids, but much of the material actually focuses on helping parents change. This is the thing that sets this book apart from other parenting books I’ve ready and is why it gets my 5 stars.
