This catchy title does not promote the demise of your children....just the opposite. You could see it as that instruction manual for raising children that never arrived. Steve provides more than just principles, he gives you a goal and a framework to put them in. He helps you look at the long-term and then gives helps for those short-term moments that arise in parenting. If you've read "Growing Up Whitney" this will serve as a reinforcement. If you haven't read "Whitney", this is a must read!
