OMG! This book is a MUST! Very insightful look on how we lost the ability to pass our family values and regain those again without taking it for granted. Opens your eyes to have we really made it and at what cost.

It's a great book!!!

I'm almost done with this book and I have to say that I've never read a book like this before. If I could I would highlight most of the book because she has so many great points.

I grew up in Detroit poor but I didn't make that my excuse for not working hard. I kept working on computer (my old Tandy) and I was alway curious about things and that allowed me to learn. My parents are both from the south and came up to Michigan for work and I can relate and agree to a lot of what Joyce says.

I've seen Detroit go down a lot the last 15 years and it makes me sad. I believe part of it is the value system has not been passed down. It reminds me of my father's family from Mississippi with all the cousins. Now it reminds me of my husband's family who is deeply rooted in the Church.

I definitely recommend this book.

For those who read "The Ties That Binds," you will understand that indeed there are values in life and we should want to instill these worthwhile values in not just our children's lives, but we should make sure they are embedded in our own lives.
"The Ties That Bind" is a rewarding book. It is a book worth reading. A book worth sharing with our friends and loved ones. "The Ties That Bind" is extraordinary!

Dr. Ladner's book is an excellent presentation of ways to keep the family together. The traditional values that families imparted many years ago are essential today and must be called upon to deal with the negative impact of environment. This scholarly written book is inspirational and compelling. Dr. Ladner has effectively outlined strategies to help all parents deal with the difficult task of being a parent. I would encourage all parents to purchase this book and share the many lessons with family members and children.

"I just don't understand..." is the lament I've heard muttered over and over by the family and friends of many middle-class youth who have gotten into serious trouble in school, with the law, with drugs or who just seem to flounder hopelessly without any sense of direction. Whether this comment is uttered in reference to someone who is in his or her early teens or who is a young adult, a common thread exists. Invariably, the youth are bright and have parents who have gone to great effort and considerable expense to provide every social, cultural and economic advantage they could afford for their offspring.
In The Ties That Bind, Joyce Ladner has bored right to the core of the problem. She has identified the critical mistakes that we have made in our drive to provide our children with everything. What we have not always provided, though, are those "timeless values" that our parents drilled into us. In this dynamic book, Dr. Ladner doesn't just point out the problem - drawing on her own experiences, she has been able to supply concrete examples and explicit directions for raising self-assured and fully functioning youth. This is a must-read book for every parent!
