A helpful book of child-raising advice from two respected and experienced child psychologists. The authors discuss what it takes to make a life-ready child. The authors discuss the methods that don't work to create healthy adults and the approach they have outlined in GIST. The authors claim that this is a book about "growing up your children". The title refers to the word "gist", the bottom line, the truth, or the inner workings of something.
"Gist is a fascinating look at many aspects of life that wouldn't typically be associated with parenting. But, the result is a new way to think about parenting that is effective, efficient, and enjoyable. The book's focus on life-readiness offers parents a new lens through which to see their parenting interactions and translates to an approach that eliminates many of the power struggles and ineffective patterns that can rob families of much of their joy -- Amazon.

Excellent for the current generation of parents. Most of these ideas weren't needed 20-30 years ago. Parents just did this.
