This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
The book is addressing very basic info and with no solutions options or much info that parents should know ! it didn't really add much and the book was very short, and it was hard for the writer to focus on one point and give enough info about every phase or specific development area ! very generic book ! I wouldn't recommend
Would you be willing to try another book from Calvin Colarusso? Why or why not?
No ! I didn't feel he aded much to my knowledge , I wish if he could introduce much more info in the book in every development area
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I barely remember what he said ! I didn't influence or inspire me or my husband at all.
