Professional reviews

"More than just resolving conflicts and keeping kids on track, parents can create the respectful family connections that children need to feel they belong, to feel that they are worthwhile individuals, to believe that doing the right thing is worth the effort. Fred Stella's earnest performance is a good match for this accessible discussion. His consistent phrasing and positive tone create the secure, nonjudgmental learning space parents need to absorb these cogent ideas. Listeners will appreciate the author's broad perspective, fine tuned during a lifetime of writing and teaching and yet full of ideas that sound fresh and hopeful. Along with Stella's skillful reading, the author's colorful vignettes and targeted suggestions make this a guide parents will turn to repeatedly to keep their family life vibrant and their children connected.
