Love That Boy by Ron Fournier I started to read this book I thought it presented an excellent point of view of parenting with all kinds of children including ones with special needs.  The author goes through his trial and tribulation regarding all three of his children, their encounters and how different issues with each one.  The key behind the book exposes how many parents push, demand or threaten their child what they are going to do and when.  For example, you will go to college and not just any college but Harvard.  The author provides several research topics of what we as parents should not do but most importantly what we should be doing and/or missing that will prevent a child from being well rounded in a world that is hard to fit in.  I think all new parents should be required to read this book before their child arrives so they have a more realistic idea how to raise a child rather than repeating the same mistakes their parents and grandparents did.  Allow children to make mistakes and fail.  The learning experience is far more powerful then resolving each conflict for them.    

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
