Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A timely and reassuring look at contemporary parenting. Lindsay Powers explains how weak science and dubious ideology have been used to steal the joy from parenting and replace it with self-doubt. Are you a good parent who feels bad? You need this book!” Amy Tuteur, MD, Harvard-trained OB/GYN and author of Push Back: Guilt in the Age of Natural Parenting
“Whether it happened today or ten years ago, you can still remember the judgy jerk who told you that you were doing something horribly wrong as a parent. Guess what? You weren’t. And finally, we’ve got proof: THIS WONDERFUL BOOK!” Lenore Skenazy, president of Let Grow and founder of Free-Range Kids
