Good Book. Poor choice for narration.

This is a good book. But it was hard to get through for me because the narrator was so robot/mechanical sounding it was distracting.

Awful narration!

I couldn’t even listen to this book 5 minutes because of the narrator! It sounds like a robot is reading it! No inflection, and completely annoying! Total waste of money on this one since I will not be able to listen to it!!

Too religious

I liked how the book began, but as it progressed it got more and more religious. I am a very open minded individual, and grew up in a Lutheran atmosphere. I would have liked to enjoy this book without having religion shoved down my throat. Tried to skip chapters to continue the book, but couldn’t finish it.

Nice, but nothing groundbreaking

I liked that it had Christian elements and encouragement, but I think I was wanting more facts and information. A lot of the content seemed obvious. The narrator's voice was super robotic and creepy.

Valuable information

Asa new mom, I was looking for information that resonated with me and the way I wanted to raise my son. This was information and what I loved were the examples and how the book gave advice for all stages of growth.

TOO RELIGEOUS

So heavily wrapped in religion from beginning to end it was hard to filter out the applicable and helpful nuggets from each chapter.
Personally I believe it should have come with a warning for those of us not looking for sermons.
Clearly a Trojan horse for heavy handed promotion of Christianity.
If I wish to read/listen to the bible I will read/listen to the bible.

some good points but a little Bible bashy

I really liked the way the books flowed and found a lot of the conversation and tips helpful and opened my mind to handling situations in a different way however there was a lot of reference to God and the Bible and prayer of which I'm not convinced can influence raising a boy in this day and age
