Reviews - What do customers think about Parenting On Your Own?
And she quotes Cynaumon.... Jun 20, 2004
Ms. Hunter refers to 'research' by "psychologist Greg Cynaumon" in this book. Interesting, since Greg Cynaumon is NOT a psychologist and is not licensed to practice any type of counseling or therapy by any government agency. (Try an internet search on Cynaumon for more info on him.) That brings into question Hunter's other sources and conclusions in the book. Overall I found this a very preachy tome with a real negative flavor toward single parents.
Not what I expected in a book for Single Parents. Jul 29, 1999
I was not pleased with this selection at all. Of the five books I purchased through this site.com involving the single parent, this was the only one I could not force myself to read. Instead of giving you insight and advise on single parenting, the author used Bible verses that implied single parents were inferior to two parent families. Too much negativity for me!!!
