"A Book Full Of Wisdom and challenge, written by one of the world's leading nurturers of parents. Dr. Leach is deeply concerned about the inadequate support and parenting children are getting in our present marketplace society. She challenges all of us to put families and children first, and she suggests innovative ways that not only society but individual parents can bring about change in our priorities. A wonderful book!"
