They say that parenting is all communication with love sprinkled in there somewhere. If you can keep your ears open, and train yourself to really listen to your child's needs, then your child will grow up to make creepy political ads long before he calls an election. Thus ends my only political joke on MBE.
Sometimes I think what she presents is a little too permissive and touchy-feely, but that may have something to do with how I was raised. (Not a strict household by any means, but I didn’t get away with much.) I think the key though, as with all books of this type, is to take out of it what is useful to you and add it to your parenting toolbox. I know that I will definitely be reading this book again when Baby C gets a little older and starts talking back and doing and other annoying things. Using Ms. Harris’ principles, I feel that I will be able to be like a detective and ferret out exactly what the root of his problem is.
