    "good and bad"

    Encouraging if somewhat obvious advice. Main concept figure out whom you would like your kids to be and become that person to lead by example.
    I liked Screamfree Parenting better, if only because it relied less on the bible, which to my reading is hardly a positive example for parents.
    I started skipping chapters a little more than halfway through in pure disgust.
    Good luck to the perseverant.
