I'll be blunt. You've got a big job to do and a short window in which to do it. If you believe that you are to be in healthy authority over your child, this book is for you. If you don't, put it down right now and buy another.

After you read Have a New Kid by Friday, you'll tell yourself, "I can't wait for my kids to misbehave. I'm ready for them!" I promise.

Let the fun begin. . . .

From the Back Cover

Change your child's behavior--fast!

Want a kid without the attitude? Without the behavior that makes you slink away in the grocery store and pretend you're not the parent? A kid with character who isn't a character?

Guaranteed!

Have a New Kid by Friday is your 5-day action plan--Monday through Friday--that really works! With his signature wit and commonsense psychology, internationally recognized family expert Dr. Kevin Leman reveals why your kids do what they do and what you can do about it--starting right now.

Anyone can do it. All it takes is you deciding to stand up and take charge. Want a great kid? Want to be a great parent? Then take the 5-day challenge. Someday your kid will thank you for it.

Special Feature: "Ask Dr. Leman"
Gutsy advice on over 100 of the hottest topics for parents, including bedtime battles, lying, argumentative attitudes, sibling rivalry, talking back, and many more.

Format: Hardcover
This book is amazing. I have recommended it to many parents. It helped me figure out why I was so frustrated with my children. I saw how I was part of the problem; I wasn't following through with consequences. I have learned how to set boundaries, allow my child to experience the "reality" of their choices,and see the importance of keeping track of misbehavior. I started to write notes to myself so that I would remember to say "no" when they asked for something.I am now experiencing a respecful relationship with my children.

I love Dr Leman's straightforward, pull no punches way of writing.

And finally, a book that actually has real-life examples and suggestions of what to do. So many books are so abstract, but this one has example after example - which is something I needed.

Excellent book.

This book is no nonsense clear and practical. What makes it brilliant is that it gives the parents great ideas that are actually effective. It also calls the parent to a higher standard of parenting that does not include any bullying or yelling.

If you want to help out your kids and you..buy this book immediately!

I liked the 'Orange Rhino' book it however it And most parenting books are all ways for you remember why you shouldn't yell. And very few suggestions on how to actually get your kids to do what you want them to without yelling.
This book is much better!
All ways to still get what you want out of your kids and how to avoid yelling while doing it!
Let's face it getting out the door on time, cleaning your room, these things need to happen. Can't recomend this book enough.

I liked the book but it didn't work for me. I believe it could work for some children though. I believe it depends on their makeup and how they have been brought up and disciplined.
