Some reviewers have criticized the Judeo-Christian underpinning of this book. I have no problem with that aspect of it. The problem for me is that the message is rather too subtle and abstract. The lack of respect presented in this book is when Brother and Sister take mild issue with their parents' choice of a picnic spot and Mama and Papa Bear take mild issue with Gramps and Gran's choice of a picnic spot. More power to the families for whom this, incredibly, constitutes disrespect, but that's not the case in mine, where we struggle with opposition, rudeness, and defiance on a much more overt basis every day. If you have a child who struggles with these things and who may or may not have a clinical diagnosis, don't waste your money on this book, because it's not meant for you.
