This is a great no nonsense and logical guide to being great parent. I read it in two days and this helped with any insecurities I had over the job I was doing. It's a very reassuring read. It covers all those problem areas and makes you feel ok about saying 'NO" to your child without the guilt.
One of the best books on the market for parents to learn how to get around their kids without the kids noticing whats going on. It should be something you get in a gift when you have a baby along with glue(for broken items), headache pills (for you)and this book. Kids are great :-) when you know how to beat them at their own game!
Absolutely awesome book! I enjoyed reading it before I even had kids, and now that I have a little one its a great tool to have. Its a great read with funny stories and down to earth common sense advice from a professional. There is suppose to be a tv show based on the book coming out in Australia soon - looking forward to it!
Love your way through this book. Its the best one I have read in ages. I love reading and this author has what it takes to keep you flicking from page to page. It is a great read well worth the money and is a book that you can enjoy over and over again. Grab it to down and sit with a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy.
