This book gives incredible insight, to new parents or parents who are in need of help as to how affirmation, love and patience can effect a childs developement or change their attitude. My husband & I were fortunate to be given this book to read early in our son's life, so we have been able to consistently implement it and that is why we believe our son is such a loving, secure and funny child. A must for all new parents and parents who are having problems.
