A wishy-washy attempt at a serious pseudo-psychology parenting book. The author states her views but is unable to follow-through with many of her beliefs about raising her daughter with limited media and commercial influence. Fortunately, she does include the results of some "real" research so you will at least hear what the experts are discovering. Raises interesting issues about permissive parenting, especially our dependence on "convenience" guiding what we choose to entertain and feed our children. This is a fun read, but far from the true scientific summary I expected.
