--Hal Runkel, LMFT, bestselling author of ScreamFree Parenting
"Nelsen's tone is that of a patient teacher, gentle but never coddling, and Tamborski and Ainge's more conversational styles bring an "in the trenches" feel without falling into the self-deprecation so common in peer-focused parenting books...a welcome guide in tough moments."
"A delightful and fun book to read with practical and effective parenting tools. Each story used resonates with our daily and challenging lives with our children. This is a must read book for parents who want to raise independent, empowered and capable kids."
