I have had this book ever since I first became a mom, a foster mom that is.....13 years ago. I've read many parenting books but I have to say this is my all time favorite (Shepherding a Child's Heart is a close second).
This morning Hope and I had a run-in. She told me she didn't want to go with me to take out the trash. Then she changed her mind after I left. When I came back she was hysterical, crying, thrashing, saying why don't I listen to her, and on and on. Wanting to argue that it was her choice, but remembering the book, I said:
"You really wish you could have come with me, huh?"
