Some of the subjects she covers are how to put an end to whining, teaching kids about money and finances, best discipline practices, and even advice on transitioning into parenting adult children. Although there are some words of warning, primarily the book is positive and upbeat as it steers the reader through and around common pitfalls in childrearing and gives encouragement along the way. The reader will not only enjoy, but will also relate to the humorous and sometimes slightly self-effacing stories the author shares.
Much of the material will seem like common sense that bears repeating, and some of it may be some new food for thought for the parent who is searching for answers. The book is designed to help parents maneuver through the parenting process without losing their minds, but the primary goal is to help them raise happy, well-adjusted children to become successful, responsible, and mature adults. Happy reading!
