short and sweet
powerful points and nice stories. wish there was more stories and anecdotes. and tips. Also wish she would indicate whether or not her research accounted for cultural differences of families.

The Profound highlight for me was the difference between Shame & Guilt.
The other “guideposts” were also highly valuable. Plus to be reassured that you cannot raise your children to be better than you are. That you Can and Must work on yourself also whilst raising them. To be as good as you want to raise them. And that that’s OK. Empowering.

A very good refresher, but not her best book.
Brene Brown truly changed my life. I will buy everything she does without regrets. This is not really a book, but more of a spoken word recording. It is good, but you will get so much more out of her audible book called "The Power Of Vulnerability." That is her masterpiece and it will explain the ideas presented in this book in much greater detail. This is more of a refresher and goes in more depth about how the ideas apply to parenting. like I said before this is a spoken word talk and she is an excellent speaker. And when I say excellent I mean maybe the best I've ever heard. She is very engaging and easy to understand. But, it's not just some touchy-feely junk like some reviewers have stated. Her ideas are backed with real research that she conducted herself. Like I said before she changed my life and I now understand what I need to do to make positive changes in relationships and parenting. This book is good, but it's not the best starting point.

You will add dimension to your parenting skills!
What did you like best about this story?
Since Brene Brown took TEDtalks by storm, I've been following her work. I believe this is a "game-changer" for lack of a better term. We can all improve continuously, and Brene's ten guideposts are to the heart and readily accomplished. I changed my communication immediately and I thought I was pretty aware of the top parenting skills. I learned! A must listen... a "hallpass" to have made mistakes and turn relationships around without shame.
