Rated 5 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent Parenting Guidelines This book was recommended to me by my pediatrician. I love it because it is written in very simple terms as apposed to a "Dr." written book. It is very easy to understand and has simple techniques. I am excited to try some of them with my 3 boys. 08/21/2008
