I had to give this one 3 stars as it was dryer than salt on a snail, but it had some really good points (That I've already heard).

This is a good book for any first time reader of parental help. It has some very good points on how to communicate with kids in a way that doesn't seem threatening and keeps them engaged. I have tried some of the suggestions in this book on my own kids (who have autism), and they do work, most of the time. If you can manage to push through the dry scientific content, then I would recommend this book to all parents.
