Helps parents set boundaries with their children and teach the concept of boundaries to their children.
The authors' explanation of how a lack of development proper boundaries in childhood leads to various challenges in adulthood is extremely illuminating and helps provide the "big picture" of parenting and what it is all about.

Extremely good resource-- one that every parent should consider.
