Alright fine. Lock the thread. I don't really care anymore. You guys think you know who I am, but you don't. I'm a musician, i'm a composer, conducter, violinist, and pianist. I am not a freak of any sort.

That book just so happens to be one of the best in it's Genre, but if you guys have a fixed opinion about me that isn't true, then it's probably best that this thread is locked.

Please, don't judge the book based on your opinion of me. You can never know who someone is based on how they appear to you in online forums.

Its like a wife giving her husband a book on how to preform better in bed. :p

I am being confused for you o_O

And yes i personally would never recommend a parenting or any of those types of books to anyone. It's basically saying "well you kinda suck at taking care of your lawn, look at this book"

No. It's like saying "I love you so much I want you to have a wonderfull relationship with your children that is based on love, respect, and freedom".

Then let someone figure it out on their own instead of pushing your agenda.

If they need help they will search it out, they don't need someone pushing a guide book on them before they even start.

no... not really. :rolleyes:

Its only mean if you recommend or buy this book for someone else when they didn't ask for it. If you buy it yourself then thats fine or if you reccomend it when someone asks for a good parenting book.

Does this book include the Secret™?
Nope. It's just meant to teach parents how to have the relationship with their kids that they've always dreamed of having.

How do you know that every parent is dreaming the same thing?

My mother and I have a wonderful relationship. It is eccentric but it is what we want and we are happy with it. I would be afraid if she started being all loving towards me.

I prefer it when we feel comfortable enough to be able to flip each other off as a response to something. And then we laugh at it.

That's great. I'm not against that. If you're enjoying it then that's wonderful.

I'm not suggesting this book to anyone. I'm just putting it out there for those of you who are interested.

Then why word that post the way you did? That may not be parents dream relationship to have with their kids. It may be for you but not for others.

ALl you had to do was state that it has the dream relationship that you want to have with your kids or what your mother has with you

Wow, first one thread where the OP was accused of pushing his dogma, now another where the OP is accused of pushing their agenda.

Let's see how long it takes for the snarky "People can post whatever they want, just don't look if you don't want" posts to start...

Anyone who has read the book has had amazing breakthroughs in their relationships not only with their kids, but with anyone in their life.

I know that there are billions of people in this world and that they don't all think the same, but there is a general idea of how parents want to treat and be treated by their kids.

I was just stating my opinion on the subject. It can be construed as pushing an agenda since it was the poster's mother that wrote the book.
