    How do you like Making Brothers and Sisters Best Friends? I have heard about it but nothing about how real people like it. Thanks!

    Gherkin – We’re enjoying it! The writing is humorous and the examples realistic. So far it’s given us a lot to talk about, and I’m hoping that we’ll see a difference in behavior soon, too. It talks a lot about heart attitudes, which is the root of most problems: selfishness, pride, insensitivity, etc. Even though we haven’t finished it, I would definitely recommend it.
