Reading the book I found myself overall agreeing with much of what I read. In many ways this book summarizes in one spot what I've heard elsewhere and seen elsewhere and adds in illustrations, examples, and at times, unique insights. I did find myself shaking my head a few times when he was describing what girls are like and birth order. Dr. Leman speaks in generalizations (how else can he address all the readers!) yet at times I felt disconnected from the generalizations - they didn't express my reality. There are a few spots where he uses the phrase 'guaranteed' and I can tell you those topics and approaches he speaks of, are not guaranteed. That said, his points are insightful, helpful, and for the vast majority will ring true.
Personally, the reminder and insights were a good tool for helping me review my approach to parenting, and also let me notice where I've slipped in areas I've been intentional in the past. It's always encouraging for my wife and I to hear stories of other families who have had success in their parenting, and reading this book provided that sort of encouragement to me.Read more ›
My husband wanted me to buy this (and he doesn't read a ton) and he's reading it and learning valuable tools. He's a great dad! Thanks for the resource!
