I found this book to be helpful in many areas: parenting, being a wife, sister, daughter, co-worker....There were many 'good points' in this book that make sense when striving for a happy, relaxed relationship with others.
"This practical, effective guide for parents of all ages with kids of all ages introduces proven principles for overcoming the anxieties and stresses of parenting and setting new patterns of connection and cooperation. Well-written in an engaging, conversational tone, the book is sensible, straightforward, and based on the experiences of hundreds of actual families. It will help all parents become calming authorities in their homes, bring peace to their families today, and give kids what they need to grow into caring, self-directed adults tomorrow."
