In this book, you are taken on an epic journey that summons you to examine how you have been inviting the village to be active participants in the raising of your children. While it may come across as a biography, it is intended as a powerful reflective and healing tool for you as a parent, as well as someone who was parented by the village. While the parent may be well intentioned by inviting or allowing the village to participate in the collective raising of children, the repercussions may be adverse.
