I've had a copy of this book for many years. A Gift to me from my Uncle. It's almost essential for any parent. A common sense/ truly sensitive book about raising kids. Not what you would expect, but wonderful to read. (over and over). I just purchased this copy for my daughter who has small children. Phyllis Theroux is a fabulous writer.
