Love is necessary for our survival and is the key ingredient for both the parent and the child. Children see the magic in everything, and loving parents can and will experience so many magical moments while raising their children and mudpies can be fun at times though they also leave us covered with dirt.

From Dr. Siegel's experience as a father of five, grandfather of eight, pediatric surgeon, counselor to those with life-threatening illnesses, and as a "Chosen Dad" for the suicidal and abused children he has met, he knows that childhood has a profound effect on lifelong health. He's seen that what we learn in our earliest years has a direct effect on self-esteem, behavior, and choices. The parenting we receive is truly the number one health issue in most people's lives.

In this wonderful audiobook, he shares with the listener the gems he has garnered from his medial practice and family life. He explores every aspect of parenting, from help for new parents, to those with young children to teens, to parents facing an empty nest. This audiobook will uplift, strengthen and guide the listener through the inevitable ups, downs, joys and heartaches of parenting. Download and start listening now!

    " Not a parent, but even so this was highly educational and a great read. Should I ever take that parenting step I will own a copy of this book :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mara | 11/17/2010

    " Nice, funny, short snippets of great advice. Although some should just be common sense, it's always good to read them, and everyone needs reminding of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 maggie | 12/2/2009

    " More a book of affirmations than a "how to", easy to dip into and sample. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nathan | 8/24/2009

    " Ok. Laissez-faire-style advice on parenting with "Make the Magic" tips on how to translate the advice into an actionable plan. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Taylor | 6/20/2007

    " This was...just okay. I didn't feel like I really learned anything new or came away with any major inspirations. Not a total waste of time, and I'm sure there are some good ideas for other folks in here. But after a lot of the other stuff I've read, this was kind of blah. "
