review 1: This book surprised me. I thought it would be a "how to" book with examples and "to do" lists. It was but not in the usual way. It really pushed me to examine myself and where I am at on my spiritual journey as a person first, THEN as a parent. While I wish I had this book when my kids were younger, I don't know if I would have appreciated the concepts presented as much then as I do now as a more mature spiritual being. I have discovered that I am the barrier between myself and God and that I have habits that keep me from becoming the person God wants me to be, habits I am too afraid to let go of because I am afraid of how powerful I might be - like the Nelson Mandela quote. Very thought-provoking book. I find myself reflecting on it and referring to it again and ag... moreain. And to think I got it on a whim, not because I have any SWC of my own but to help me with my calling over the Young Adults.
review 2: I loved this book. The one complaint I do have is that the title of the book is misleading. This book is appropriate for any parent or youth leader, whether dealing with a strong-willed child or not. He includes great insight into the scriptures and how to parent by learning from examples in the scriptures as well as from our Heavenly Father. He explains some of the strategies that Satan uses to mislead our youth, which are no different from those he used in our premortal life. I have already applied some of the the things I learned from this book in my parenting and have found them very effective. Highly recommend this book! less
