Ladysmith, BC Canada (PressExposure) June 11, 2007 -- Being possibly the most arduous task any of us will ever face, there are no prerequisites for the undertaking, other than requiring a marriage license and even that is not entirely essential. It is ironic, therefore, that we spend most of our life in studies of one form or another but devote little time to the complex dynamics of child rearing.
Having taken marriage vows and being then blessed with offspring, we usually care for that child by applying techniques our parents employed with us or otherwise, renouncing those, opt to seek out our own strategies via trial and error. Only in the eventuality of a grave crisis, do we finally turn to literature on child rearing practices and, that failing, resort to a salvage effort by seeking guidance from those in the professional sector.
Mario S. Fedele has ventured for the first time into non-fiction and produced a labor of love titled, "God's Gift."
On his part, he had no clue in how to raise a child and engaged in the endeavor as best he could. The task would have been daunting enough had his child been healthy, but with the medical problems that ensued, the challenge became frightfully overwhelming.
In reading this book, the reader will be drawn into the family's struggles and tribulations, and will come away having gained valuable insights into areas such as behavior modification, temper tantrums, dietary concerns, night-bottle syndrome, scoliosis, Reye's syndrome, Stickler's syndrome, and so much more.
Interspersed in this mix are humorous situations to add levity and fascinating snippets to keep the reader well entertained.
In spite of all his limitations, Mr. Fedele considers his son to be a true gift from God. Hence, the title of the book, "God's Gift." In fact, the meaning of the name, Shaun, translates to "God's gracious gift."
People, who've read the book, have enjoyed it thoroughly, finding it to be extremely engaging and very enlightening as well. Because of it, Mr. Fedele feels that his memoir will have a wide appeal and be of inspiration to all who read it.
