I would have agreed with the prior reviewer until I came to the section about homosexuality. Instead of providing needed advice on how to promote the self esteem of these children, the authors indicate that parents seek counseling, that there is something wrong. As a parent of a gay teenager, I hope that readers are intelligent enough to take this passage with a grain of salt. I also urge the authors to update this otherwise positive book.
When I was having trouble with my 4 year old's difficulty in sharing her feelings, my mom recommended this book. At first I was intimidated by its size. But it is a quick read, very well written, and most important, the very best book I have ever read about parenting. This puts all other books to rest. I have implemented its suggestions into my parenting skills and have found a world of difference.
I picked up this book shortly after my first child was born 21 years ago. It led me down a loving and delightful path of parenting my five children. Although each of them are very different, this book had the answers for each of them. My oldest has just graduated from college with a degree in Recrational Therapy. During her internship she was asked by the head child psycologist how she seems to come by her talent with children so naturally. She told him her mom had raised her by the book 'Your Child's Self Esteem'. He quickly retrieved his copy and said that it is his bible! I am so grateful this book came into my hands so that I had the tools I needed to raise my wonderful kids!
