Based on the title, I thought this was going to be another book with a list of 15 things to do and not to do if you want your kids to grow into decent adults I was pleasantly surprised to discover instead a collection of entertaining vignettes from the author s childhood that showed how his parents values, rules and actions shaped him without his realizing it I loved how his remembrances of growing up in the 1970 s and early 1980 s brought back memories of my own childhood, and reminded me of th [...]

    16. This book was a joy to read Starbuck O Dwyer does a great job of remembering how we all thought as kids, but most of us have forgotten I could relate to his stories because I also was a small child threw the 1970s I laughed so hard at his family memories including vacations, his security blanket and trips to his grandparents home I recommend this book to anyone that is looking for a fun, enjoyable and sentimental read.

    17. I really enjoyed the stories the author tells about his childhood Let s face it, the world today is scary, and raising a child in these times with social media is vastly different than it was for us middle aged adults who were raised in the 60s and 70s Making memories and giving memorable experiences to our children should be mainstream than ever This book, with messages that range from tradition to honesty and loyalty, is a must read for any parent.

    18.

    21. I wasn t sure what to expect when I started reading, but once I started I found I couldn t put it down when I had some spare time My favourite stories were Courage , and Love and Marriage , both of which almost brought me to tears Anyone with a sense of humour should read this book

    22. Honest, real and down to earth Easy to relate to and I found myself reminiscing over past childhoods memories Thank you for such a nice read

    23. A good selection of anecdotes written in O Dwyer s wry style Written as events in his childhood, and what they helped him learn, they are entertaining and a quick light read.

    24. As a child born in the 60 s, the story took me back to a time when things were definitely different I didn t give it five stars because I am female and the book is written from a male perspective In other words, some of the things that interested Starbuck would not have interested me at all I laughed about the yellow blanket incident, although I should not have My own son did the same thing with sucking on the blanket It was crocheted, and he toted it EVERYWHERE The way we weaned him was to have [...]

    25. First of all, I found the title of this book misleading Instead of a how to book, this is much a memoir of the author s childhood I don t mind reading memoirs, in fact, I rather enjoy them just wish I had realized that s what I would be reading I do like that he apparently learned some important lessons from his childhood experiences Overall an enjoyable read I especially like the very last story about his grandparents relationship My only suggestion to the author would be to change the title

    26. You might think this book is non fiction, based on the title, but it s actually comprised of a collection of stories about children, parents, and various parenting topics It s a fun read Topics covered include courage, popularity, punishment, faith, tradition, and loyalty Worth a read I received this book as a prize through a giveaway.
