Praise

“Dr. Alanna Levine’s book is not only timely but also crucial for our 
children’s emotional health and well-being. Our ultimate parenting goal is to raise independent, well-adjusted kids who can someday live without us. Dr. Levine’s book will give parents the knowledge and tools to do so.”
—Michele Borba, educational psychologist, author of The Big Book of Parenting Solutions
