I have read a lot of parenting books and articles. Right now, this book is the one that I am reading and loving!! I think kids should enjoy their childhood and be free to explore and develop on their own. Boredom and frustration can be good for them. I am not pushing my kids to be super achievers or to read by the age of 3. Of course I want my kids to be successful, but most of all I want them to be secure, independent and happy.
