This book explains a different way of looking at the child - parent dynamic. How each parent comes into their roles with a set of expectations and coping skills, and each child with their own personalities that are evident from the very beginning. Then as you move through the natural development points of the child, if the parent's history and expectations can come into play to see the child's personality and meet their needs at that particular moment in time. There is a lot of useful information in this book and it is well annotated and researched. I am not sure I agree with all the points, but it certainly provides a very good look at the totality of a parenting relationship without ignoring neither the parent, nor the child.
