Formatted in short, easy-to-read chapters, you can pick it up at any time, learn something really useful, and set it down until you have a few more free minutes. I recommend this book.”

SandGmomGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great for moms & dads!September 21, 2012SandGmomGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I purchased this book for my husband because he's always down on himself for not being a better dad. Its a great book with big ideas & small sacrifices that can lead to life changes! It helps him focus on what's really important for his kids. As a mom, it helps me to remember to give our kids time alone with their dad. Too often I feel the need to be Super Mom & do everything for everyone. But there are some things kids can only get from their dad (or another male role model). I wonder if there's a book like this for moms!!
