Excellent book and very easy to read--even with interruptions. Dobson gives practical, loving, and common sense advice in a world that seems to lack common sense. (I read the whole book--not just certain selections--before reviewing the book.)

I read several passages of this one in a local bookstore, and the advice seems as useless as that of his other publications. I found the book completely worthless, and some of the man's ideas about raising children are criminal.
