This manual was inspired by two decades of work with parents who were looking for a simplified way to raise their family without having to read several books and pay for hours of parenting classes or therapy (when it is not necessary). Since every parent wishes that they had an owners manual for their children; I felt that it should be written!
Though there is tons of information that could have been included in the manual; the focus was to create a hands on, to the point resource. Individualized consultation is available.
