    Best Parenting Book Since Emotional Intelligence, April 22, 2010
    This review is from: Mind in the Making: The Seven Essential Life Skills Every Child Needs (Paperback)

    I have read a ton of books on parenting, and Mind in the Making is one of the smartest parenting books I have ever read. She takes all of this information and studies and synthesizes into these 7 steps that are really easy to understand, and can be useful with children of any age — not just young children. My kids are teenagers and I found the information incredibly helpful and I saw results — especially the chapter about “focus.” This book really changed the way I parent.

    I don’t normally go in for this type of book, I’m not big on self-help stuff, but I read a couple of good reviews on an educational website which made it sound interesting so I bought it. I’m glad I did.

    There’s very little here that is really new, I suspect, I think good parents have been trying to do these things for years. BUT, this book serves as a great one-stop shop for good parenting practices and, more importantly, explains why the practices are effective using real world examples and academic research. Generally speaking, I don’t have much patience for being told “what” without the “why”, that’s not a problem with this book.

    This is a great little book and a quick read, I’ve already found myself referring back to it for specific ideas when working with my kids. I encourage you to read it.

    Anyone who cares about children and the future should read this book. Obviously, parents are those who will most benefit from the simple and effective suggestions for developing in their children the seven skills the author talks about. But I think this is also a must-read for educators, grandparents like me, etc. Full of excellent research, great ideas, delightful anecdotes. Not a reference book to sit on the shelf – this one should be kept handy.
