It's hard to believe that someone with the strident ideas and zany reputation of Dr. Laura could hold anyone's attention for 10 hours, especially on the subject of parenting. But she does it, thanks in part to Barbara Caruso's mature reading, but also because the author has a lot of valuable things to say. She is a bully with her ideas, just as she is on the air, but the message is captivating: Kids need parents who care and spend time with them. Many research and news snippets offer support for her arguments and balance the know-it-all quality of Schlessinger's writing. Listen to this audio if you want to be stimulated, entertained, and pushed into being a better parent. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
