Five Star Review on Amazon By Jessica Kirk
This is a must read for every parent. How often have you heard the old lament , “Children don’t come with instructions.” ?
Dr. Hughes has now provided us with that instructional manual. The principles discussed in this book are not new discoveries, but the positive part each plays in the emotional development of children is undeniable. Even though this book focused on mothers as emotional coaches I would encourage dads to read it as well. The common sense approach and personal experiences shared by the author make this book especially relevant.
