Looking for parenting audio books for my commute, I found this... and hated it. The first 40+ minutes is nothing but a bombardment of depressing statistics and negativity. This may be true, but I prefer to look at life from a strengths-based perpective... fear and negativity may fit in somewhere, but my focus is on what is working, what I can promote and support to build in more of what my boys will need. If there is useful guidance in this book, I couldn't swim through the concrete to get to it.
