“The Parent’s Guide is readable at all levels of education. A parent doesn’t have to read the entire book to find the answers to their parenting problems. There are enough good, practical solutions to help parents change their negative parenting habits. All of these things occurring early in the parenting experience can help prevent child abuse and neglect.”
