From the first page to the last, it refreshingly does exactly what it promises: it shows you how to parent gently, with kindness, compassion, and connexion, always keeping that strong and healthy relationship with your child at the forefront of your journey. It takes you back to what parenting should be: a respectful partnership. A dance between parent and child, where everyone's voices are heard, and everyone's needs are met. J. Mcgrail, The Path Less Taken
