Every parent needs this charming little book (especially if you prefer spending time with your children opposed to wading through huge tomes on the same subjects). It's all here. Read it in 20 minutes, but refer to it often, and spend the rest of your life following Dr. Dreyfus's counsel, suggestions, and advice. Read it with your children as the illustrations, created by her young son, are enchanting. Place this book on your nightstand when you've had a difficult day! Your children, your grandchildren, your nieces, your nephews and, in fact, any child who crosses your path will thank you and love you for it.

This book condenses the advice that the author (a child psychiatrist) has dispensed to families in serious trouble with their children into 25 rules. The book is straight forward, easy to understand and best of all I read it in one sitting. Most parenting books are 300 pages or more and I never get to the end, but this one is easy to read and the 25 rules work. I keep it handy because re-reading the rules is helpful. I think this book makes a great gift, it's illustrated with the author's son's drawings. I recommend this book whole heartedly.

I received this book as a gift. It is a wonderful book filled with some very straight forward wisdom for raising a loving child. This is one of those little books that parents can cherish and one day pass along to their children when their children start having children. This book is beautifully illustrated by the authors own 7 year old boy.

This book is so beautifully written and illustrated! Eve's words are so clear, simple, and "graceful" and Noah's art is just breathtaking! Great, great book to give as a gift or to keep for yourself!

I loved this book. Eve Dreyfus must a beautiful person to have such a beautiful book. And her son must be just as precious. Thank you for this gift.
