Decided to read this after hearing Barbara Coloroso speak at a literacy conference. Found this book very helpful. Have tried implementing some of the suggestions with my own son and have already seen positive changes. Really opens your eyes on the message you're giving your children. Highly recommend for any parent. And if you get an opportunity to hear Barbara Coloroso speak I recommend it as well.
