My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ok I loved this book! I decided to re read it after 3 years and it still as visceral as the first time I read it. This time I took my time and read it everyday for 15 minutes in the morning as part of my morning routine.
What I love about this is the author’s unflinching self portrait of how she thinks and behaves. I am not sure many of us can do that especially in a world filled with digital narcissism.

The premise of the book is that not all children are the same; so what works with one child will not work with another. In the media this book has been demonised for its child rearing principles but quite to the contrary its is not a parenting book. Rather it is a personal journey about a parent who thought she knew it all but learnt a few things along the way.

I would recommend it. It goes to my hall of fame shelf.
