Amy Morin doesn't have the vocal charisma or stylistic tools of a seasoned audiobook narrator, but her reading has a no-frills honesty that holds listeners close as she delivers her exceptional parenting advice. Don't expect perfection, don't take shortcuts to avoid discomfort, don't prevent your child from making mistakes--these are just a few of the common mistakes strong parents avoid. The alternative strategies Morin recommends will come across as welcome relief from the lack of direction some families suffer today. Along with well-crafted examples and suggestions, she offers many practical mantras parents can repeat with kids to spell out what they believe and what they expect. Listening to "13 Things" is an optimistic reminder that parents can take back their right to influence the kind of people their children will become.
