Every parent wants to raise children who are successful, happy, hard working, compassionate, creative and innovative. To help parents, Ginsburg answers two crucial questions:

  • How do I give my children the unconditional love needed to thrive while holding them to the highest expectations needed for success?
  • How do I protect my children while letting them learn life lessons?
