Love this book! Dr. Christine Carter is an excellent writer with a great sense of humor. The book is easy to read and includes a lot of fascinating research along with intimate tales of her personal parenting life. My husband and I have taken this book to heart and are implementing as many of the ideas as we can. Not only are we on our way to raising happier kids, we've realized with a few simple steps, we can bring more happiness into our own lives as well. Excellent read!
