Excellent book describing how important parents and teachers are in the life of your kids. Don't let their peers take over. Many of the things put forward in this book are already apparent in our society.

I already own the first book and wanted this one for insight into the threat to children in a digital world. It lives up to my expectations and I continue to be an ardent admirer and follower of Dr. Neufeld and Dr. Mate.

Maybe to sum up my opinion in a more concise reader-friendly manner (opposite of this book's presentation):
Amazing content and rich in ideas
Poor on practical application of these ideas (all jammed in the last 30 pages)
Extremely poor on presenting these ideas in a brief and succinct manner. After the first chapter, I get it: "kids are more peer-oriented than ever before and we need to bring them in and recreate parent-child orientation. Please do not go on for chapter after chapter with the same idea!

Conclusion: If you want a great book, buy it, read the first chapter, then skip to the end of the book. Also, look for other sources of information on how to build that bridge of trust with your child.

If it was within my power I would make this book a mandatory read for all parents and teachers of small children. I am a Montessori teacher and I have made the principles found in this book the base of how I approach relationship with children within my classroom. It is a wonderful book that explains the deep roots of attachment theory and dispels common misconceptions. Attachment theory is about relationship, the relationship you develop with your child is the means to your parental power and influence. I cannot recommend this book enough.

Gabor Mate has written a book that illustrates the breakdown of the parent-child relationship. We are living in the generation of the peer - parented child (peer attached), We are so eager to ensure that our children are "socialized" that we are literally throwing them to the lions (their peers). If you value your child(ren), put aside any "I don't read that kind of stuff" attitude, dig in, and put your family and your child's future first. A compellingly argued book, well written, and truly revealing of the damage that we are doing to children's brains in the name of money and "socialization".
