I bought this book to try to learn new skills on how to deal with professional adults who misbehave in the work place. The same skills talked about in the book can be used on any person of any age.

I was helpless as my first boy starts to give me tantrums and my usual way of what I remember how my parents disciplined me doesn't seem to work. After reading this book halfway and started applying some of the principles, I start to have some sense and understanding of what he needs and what I need to do to to work together. There are still moments where I don't know what to do but it has definitely helped me manage my toddler.

It is changing the way my family operates! We are seeing change already! I love it. I finished it about a 2 weeks ago but I keep going back to my notes- almost everyday! My husband is reading it now. I have recommended it to many of my friends!

I am a huge fan of Alyson Schafer. I had called into her show on Rogers TV a couple of times and both times received advice that seemed so easy to follow and advice that you would hear nowhere else, and you know what? ...it always worked! I loved her book "Breaking the Good Mom Myth," but wanted more. "Honey, I Wrecked the Kids" provided just that. It outlines and provides great examples of her approach to parenting, which is helping to empower our children and become co-operative people in our homes and society. I watched an episode of "Supernanny," which I would normally find informative ... but after reading this book I was horrified, "Supernanny" has nothing on Alyson's techniques! Alyson's techniques require a shift in the way we view and treat our children, some techniques can be used right away and some may take more time ... But the advice is comparable to none. A must read for anyone dealing with children bouncing off the walls and wreaking havoc in your home! Like mine ... were!

I loved Breaking the Good Mom Myth: Every Mom's Modern Guide to Getting Past Perfection, Regaining Sanity, and Raising Great Kids, and I've read all of the Dreikurs books but this book really internalized all the information for me. It not only helped me to understand the motivation and challenges my children are working with but it also helped me combat some of my own demons. I am confident that reading this book has brought me closer to becoming the parent I want to be. Thanks Alyson!

Fantastic! This witty and down-to-earth book delivers practical and effective strategies for any parent struggling with discipline. Alyson goes beyond the quick-fix approach to stopping unwanted behaviour. She guides us through numerous easy-to-relate-to examples to help us understand the root causes of `mis'behaviour. Once the causes are identified, we are offered strategies that are appropriate in gaining cooperation from children in mutually respectful ways. Personally, I know this book will be an invaluable resource to me, both as a parent and in my career as a psychotherapist.

A mommy-friend recommended this book to me, and I was initially quite resistant. I ordered it from the library first, and was so taken with the whole approach that I promptly ordered it from Amazon so I'd have a copy to keep. This is a great book for the frustrated parent or tired parent or at-wits-end parent, or even the parent who just wants a few more communication tools up his/her sleeve.

Both this book and the follow-up "Ain't Misbehavin'" are so empowering in that they give positive ideas on ways to respond to children's behaviours when nothing else seems to work. I find the suggestions help me to feel more capable, more calm, and more in control of myself when my toddlers are not cooperating, and the positive effects on their behaviour are so powerful. I have a degree in psychology and find the psychology behind the approach particularly intriguing, but this book is written for all parents. It's a bit "cutsy" and overly-casual in the language at times, but it's a book I'll refer to again and again.
