Bad Childhood, Good Life: "There is extraordinary quality of spirit that leads one to aspire to conquering rather than surviving. I hope you discover that spirit in yourself.” — Dr. Laura

The #1 national bestselling author and popular syndicated radio host shows men and women that they can have a good life no matter how much they struggled in their childhood. Bad Childhood—Good Life aims to help you accept the truth of the assault on your psyche, understand your unique coping style, how it impacts your daily thoughts and actions, and guides you into a life of more peace and happiness.

For each one of us, there is a connection between our early family experiences and our current behavior. Many of the people Dr. Laura has helped did not realize how their histories impacted their adult lives, or how their choices—even their emotional reactions—were connected to their early years, playing a major role in their current unhappiness. In this hopeful, practical guide, written in her signature straightforward style and filled with real-life examples, Dr. Laura helps readers realize that no matter what circumstances they come from or currently live in, they are each ultimately responsible for their own actions and reactions as adults. Throughout, she shows the gains to be had by not being satisfied with an identity as a victim, or even as a survivor. Instead she helps readers from all walks of life strive to be the best they can each be—a victor!

"Chris D." rates the book ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ on Amazon: I really liked this book, I only read it because I was curious. As many people here, I too have had a bad childhood. Abandoned in a catholic orphanage at age 3 until 11....then in an abusive foster family. As a child I really never knew what it would be like to be loved and belong to a family. But I am now 62 and have my own family. It is amazing how wonderful my children have turned out. I have had a counselor tell me that it is not possible to have a wonderful family after a childhood like mine. But I will say "Through Him anything is possible." I have been married for 40 years. I have to say I put many of these principles from this book to work. I never had a victim mentality. I decided at 18 after I left the foster family, that I would not look back, and I am now in charge of my own life. But I was angry with God for allowing me to go through that type of childhood. Now looking back I can see how He was there for me. I will not get into detail, but the book has many good ideas that I can honestly look back and say I did that and things worked out for me. If you had a bad childhood, I would highly recommend it.


"MaijaL" rates the book ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ on Amazon:
I think my biggest take away from this book is that I can't wait for my feelings to change before I change my actions. Pain from a bad childhood will never truly go away. One must be resilient and choose to behave as though I have a good life, which I do, instead of ruining it by focusing on the pain of the past and waiting for my feelings to change. If I wait for my feelings to change I will only succeed at repeating history. Highly recommend.


"Kalmontanna" rates the book ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ on Amazon:
After reading this on Kindle, I bought 9 copies of this book for each of my brothers- that’s how good this book is! It will: hurt your feelings, make you cry, make you transcend biological relationships, have second thoughts about how you’re raising your own children, etc.
I can see why people dislike Dr. L. They’re too sensitive, prideful and or weak to help themselves and she cuts like a knife to the problem. Who has time to skirt around their problems? Get the help you need, even if it hurts. Life’s too short to be sad and depressed, unless of course you like being the victim.
