Like countless other parents, doctors Gordon Neufeld and Gabor Maté have had to confront their children becoming secretive and unreachable. Focused more and more on their friends, they recoiled or grew hostile around adults. Why? The problem, Neufeld suggest, lies in attachment; children are increasingly forming stronger attachments to their friends than to the adults in their lives.

This book is an absolute must read for all parents of young and adolescent aged children. I have completed this book twice now and it is a total game changer. Through this book I am learning I must be willing to challenge my perspective on parenting before I can change my child's behavior. This book has greatly improved my relationship with my two young children. I am forever grateful.
