Too much fluff, not enough substance... Jun 12, 2005
This book jumps all over the place and the authors love to stick in references to pop culture which are irrelevant. Most of their stories have nothing to do with kids at all. I was very disappointed in this poorly written book. I tried very hard, but could only read 2 pages at a time b/c I didn't know where the thought process was going. I enjoy reading Christian childrearing books, but this one did not keep my interest. I do however recommend an older book, but still great for parents with kids 5+. It is Gary Smalley's The Key to Your Child's Heart. Great advice in there(other than advocating spanking which I don't personally agree with--hey I'd rather have God upset with me for not hitting my kids than have him upset with me for hitting my kids)and an easy read.
Great Book! Nov 11, 2002
I found this book to be practical, for parents in the trenches. The advise at the end of each chapter (Tips From The Trenches) was extremely helpful, and gave me ideas to impliment the principles outlined in the chapter.
When I purchased the book, I thought I'd get an idea or two from it, but as a single parent, I found it to be helpmate that has made me a better parent... on my way to raising "Totally Awesome Kids"!
