I was a little overwhelmed when I first picked up this book, it's definitely not a skinny little child information guide. Once I sat down and began to delve into it, I found it to be well organized, quite informative and very honest.
This guide is a wonderful resource from preparing for parenthood, bringing the baby home, to schooling and life skills. A non-discriminatory book, it appeals to all types of parenting choices. The guide on schools covers choosing the type of school, to home schooling as an option.
I found that the word 'guide' was quite appropriate, as the advice and information actually guides you to make your choices in opposition to a book that tells you how to choose.
A great book to teach and guide you in making choices in your child's life that will direct his happiness, well being and health.
I would suggest that every parent have this book to turn to when questions arise during parenthood.
