Waste of time

What disappointed you about Parenting Boys?

Way too over simplified. I can honestly only imagine this being useful to either new and extremely nervous parents, or to the most uneducated of parents. If you have read any other parenting books this will certainly not teach you anything new.

Would you ever listen to anything by Maria T. Brodsky again?

No

How could the performance have been better?

By not existing.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Parenting Boys?

All of them

Any additional comments?

Sorry to be harsh, but this really was a waste of time and money.

As an alternative that is likely to actually teach you something instead of only stating the blatantly obvious, I recommend "Raising Boys" by Steve Biddulph

Not helpful

This book is very short and gives no real parenting advice or solutions, not worth it
