The book demonstrates how excuses go far beyond "my dog ate my homework," and can actually become words that prevent your child from reaching his or her potential.

"It's too hard," and so on) get in his way. He discovers, as will your child, that by following a few simple ideas and eliminating excuses . . . anything is possible!
