Praise

“With simple ideas and steps, this book is directed not only to parents, but to all those–educators, social workers, counsellors–whose lives and work bring them into contact with children.”
Quill & Quire
 
“May serve as a loud wake-up call for mothers and fathers…. Offers what many of the others do not–that rare commodity known as common sense.”
Winnipeg Free Press
 
“Beautifully written…terrific, poignant.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
