Product description

Review

Rarely do parenting books trigger in me an exhale. But the title alone for Heather Shumaker's new book came like that rare August breeze.
-The Washington Post On Parenting

An insightful, sensible and compassionate book full of downright revolutionary ideas.
-Salon.com

Brilliant. . . . It's OK Not to Share is an enlightening book that will make you take a second look at everything you believe.
-Parents.com

Did you read the title and think, what the heck? Me, too. Not only did I read it to figure out the title, I underlined about a third-it's that good.
-Melissa Taylor, ImaginationSoup.net

What an amazing book! [Shumaker] challenge[s] the parenting myths and fallacies that our society has embraced for so long.
-Provider Resource Organization

A breath of fresh air.
-Jane Pratt, founder of xoJane.com

These 'renegade rules' will resonate with what you know to be true, speak to what you want most for your children, and teach you how to achieve it. Don't let this one slip off your reading list.
-Dr. Becky Bailey, author of Conscious Discipline and Easy to Love, Difficult to Discipline

This beautifully written book. . . provides immediate, sanity-saving answers to tough parenting questions. I highly recommend it.
-Michael Gurian, author of The Wonder of Boys and The Good Son

From 'Bombs, Guns, and Bad Guys Allowed' to 'I Hate You! Is Nothing Personal, ' the table of contents alone is music to my ears. Heather Shumaker is a healthy mom I can relate to-and I'll bet you will too, when you hear out her logic.
-Paula Spencer Scott, author of Momfidence!

A refreshing change from the usual admonitions. . . Shumaker's Renegade Rules are based on what children really need.
-Lawrence J. Cohen, author of Playful Parenting

Shumaker beautifully shows us why letting kids be kids may be the single most important thing we can do as parents.
-Anthony T. DeBenedet, M.D. coauthor of The Art of Roughhousing

A must-read for parents and teachers. This is a book you will want with you all the time.
-Daniel Hodgins, author of Boys: Changing the Classroom, Not the Child

A no-nonsense commonsense appraoch. . . As you read this book, you will begin to feel the stress of parenting melt away.
-Vivian Kirkfield, PositiveParentalParticipation.com

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource for parents!
Reviewed in the United States on 19 December 2019
This book is an excellent resource for parents, especially those of young children. The author says all the things that most people don’t want to say or talk about, and gives concrete examples of how to apply her ideas and recommendations in typical daily scenarios. It’s practical, controversial, engaging, enlightening, interesting, and a MUST read for parents! The basic premise- let the kids BE KIDS. I enjoyed reading the book so much that I ended up buying the audio file as well so that I could listen to it again and really absorb the material. It’s that good guys, I promise!
