Review

"Dr. Erica Reischer delivers. With oodles of great scenarios drawn from real life, it's like she hits the pause button, and whispers a key piece of advice. Reischer may be offering simple strategies, but the wisdom behind them is incredibly deep and profound." Julie Lythcott-Haims, New York Times bestselling author of "How to Raise an Adult" and former dean, Stanford University "The great anthropologist Margaret Mead used to say that she could not understand our priorities: We require by law for people to get driving permits, but we allow people to bring up children without demonstrating any aptitude for parenting. If things were to change, Dr. Reischer's book would become an essential Rules of the Road for would-be parents." Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, New York Times bestselling author of "Flow" "Erica Reischer offers a 'cheat sheet' of best parenting practices. Equipped with her wisdom, we all have the potential to be 'great parents.'" Peggy Orenstein, New York Times bestselling author of "Girls & Sex" and "Cinderella Ate My Daughter" "What Great Parents Do is the only parenting playbook you need. No book has better distilled, science-based parenting tips than this one! If you have only two minutes a day, you have time pick up a quick strategy for parenting with more joy, skill, and ease. A must read!" Christine Carter, PhD, author of "The Sweet Spot" and "Raising Happiness", and Senior Fellow, Greater Good Science Center, University of California, Berkeley "Packed with useful, practical advice and how-to's, this book promises to be one that every parent will wish they had from day one." Dr. Madeline Levine, New York Times bestselling author of "The Price of Privilege" and "Teach Your Children Well"
