About the Book
This is a book for busy parents who need some simple practical hints to make parenting easier. Written in a straightforward yet compelling style, and filled with stories, examples, and practical hints, What Your Child Needs From You is a must read for every parent who wants to connect - and stay connected - to their children, no matter what their age. The book discusses the most important psychological research related to parenting.

The principles are a definitive summary of the optimal way to have happy and balanced children, and a peaceful, harmonious home life.

The book will be useful for all families, regardless of the family structure or age of the children.

My Take on the Book
This was a very practical book that provides parents with some great ideas about what parenting should be! In reading this book I came out of it with so many ideas for what I need to be doing myself to be a better father overall and you will too! I liked that the book stressed the fact that you need to be building the bonds with your children now to stay connected with them as they get older. I am continually working to try and establish these bonds and this book provided me with some additional ideas for how best to do this! I highly recommend this book to any and all parents!
