Reviews - What do our customers think?
has a religious slant and it's very simplistic  May 12, 2006
This book takes a long time to tell parents the obvious fact that they should spend a lot of time with their 6 to 12s, doing fun activities, as well as really communicating with them, because as we all know after age 12, children are a lot less likely to listen to their parents.
Also, there is a little religion along the way, which, as an agnostic, I didn't like very much.
This book affirms everything I believe in as a parent and now I know why  Nov 1, 2005
I have a stack of mostly-unread parenting books, the majority are on preschoolers, and as a mother of a 10 year old, well, it's too late for that. (The ones I did read were pretty forgettable anyway.) Then when I saw this book, and how small it was and therefore not too time-consuming to read, as well as its relevance to me now since my own child has two years left in this age bracket, I decided to give this book a go. I say "give it a go" because I have no tolerance for rubbish, especially self-help rubbish, and if any book reveals itself to be so inclined, I'm over it quickly.

But this book was different. Extremely readable. Practical. Clear. And contemporary, as in very relevant for today, even though it was written 12 years ago. (I don't know where you live, but where I live, I see lots of very unhappy children who seem to be unlikely to be able to cope with civilisation, in all senses of the word.) All parents should read this book and be it because it's about beginning with the end in mind, which is to raise children at the right speed (slowly) with authority and boundaries (of the loving kind) so that children will feel secure and loved as children, and grow to be the kind of adults that the world needs: dependable and valuable and with values.

To acheive this end, it explains how parents need to be, including of course "being" with their children. Which has nothing to do with the modern concept of "Quality Time".

I also found the Christian references useful and if anyone has a problem with that, they should try and overcome it, because they provide a further useful take on parenting.

I would recommend this book to everyone. It beats watching a parenting show on TV. This book has it all for this agegroup and I will be looking out for others by this author. But this book is truly a celebration of parenting When Your Child Is 6 to 12.
an eye opener!  Feb 5, 1999
This is by far the best book on parenting I've ever read! I stumbled upon it in an old used bookstore and haven't been the same since.

Concise, easy to read and enjoyable, each page is filled with gems. My wife and I were having difficulty with getting the kids to bed. In 3 or 4 sentences we learned why and how to solve the problem.

I have since returned all the books on parenting(100's) and keep this book on my nighttable.
