waynewlls5 Stars Out Of 5Informative Book on Tough ParentingMarch 24, 2016waynewllsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm a single male parent. I thought I was trying to make up for all of the things that our son may have/would have received if my former wife and I remained married. Although, our son did not become involved in drugs or alcohol addiction, it was rampant in the family. I still raised him in a way that I enabled him in many choices. To me it's kind of weird, he is currently in his second year of graduate school for Clinical Psychology, specializing in children and adolescents. Yet, he has/does mimic the same qualities as described in this book. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book because it has helped me to become a more Christ-centered parent. It has shown me that my parenting is still not done, even though he is twenty-three (23) years old. Thank you for sharing your struggles with me and the world!

My brother and sister-in-law and niece praise it for having enabled them to get "on the same tract" in managing their enabling issues with their son. They are trying to 'let go and let God " and in my opinion are better for it.
