I enjoyed this book but found it a bit superficial. I am a detail person and want to know as much as I can - those 'how' and 'why' questions need to be answered. Kid Cooperation fell a bit short of providing this detail. I turned to a Book, "Systemic Parenting: An Exploration of the Parenting Big Picture" (Gaskill) to fill in the details as to why both parents and kids yell, nag, and plead to get their needs and wants met. Kid Cooperation is a good summary and a basic overview, however, you will want to look elsewhere to get the important detail.

Format: Paperback
An easy read packed with incredible, realistic ideas. Ii isn't boring like so many parenting books, but written in a conversational tone that's fun to read. But what's most important is that the ideas REALLY WORK!
Each concept is clearly explained and examples are given -- the "wrong" way is demonstrated, it can be humourous, but it's amazing how many times I saw myself in them, such as "Kids! How many times to I have to tell you to put your toys away before dinner? You now the rule, yet every day you come to dinner and I see the room littered with toys. Before I put any food on the table, I expect to......" (Don't lecture. Me??) Then the book gives you the better way. (Make it brief.) "Kids -- the rule is, toys put away before dinner."
Each chapter has a summary page to copy and post on your refrigerator to help remind you of what you want to remember.
What's best is that Kid Cooperation gives you multiple ideas, since the author is a mother herself and knows that no one idea will work every time nor will it work with every kid.
I'd definately recommend this book if you want to be more calm and stop yelling and nagging your kids.

Format: Paperback
Kids don't want to be nagged. Parents don't really want to nag, either. But it is easy to fall into counter-productive behaviors. This book very simply helps parents/teachers/any adult choose their words and actions to help preserve harmony in their household.
After reading this book, I started to notice that everywhere I looked, kids were refusing to cooperate. Their parents were nagging, pleading, threatening, or waffling. I wanted to carry a stack of Kid Cooperation books in my backpack and start handing them out left and right.
Parenting is not always easy, but with the right tools, it can be joyful and peaceful -- Cooperative! KID COOPERATION helped me reinforce what is positive and effective in my parenting style. To me, this book is a gold mine. I love it.

Format: Paperback
I just wasn't getting much respect or cooperation from my 3 and 5 year old sons. Mornings were especially unbearable! I would routinely scream from the kitchen-"How many times do I have to tell you?...Turn off the TV this minute!...Your breakfast is getting cold!" The truth is that my actions did not reinforce my words and they really didn't have to comply until the third time I asked- when I finally put down what I was doing in the kitchen, ran into the family room and stood right in front of them ranting and raging like a crazy women--veins popping out of my neck shouting threats that I knew I couldn't carry out like..."That's it!...Get going or I'll...I'll...I'll send you both to live with Grandma!...FOREVER!! You know how the kids know when your just about at your wits' end; why do we have to get to that point? KID COOPERATION taught me many ways to break this annoying ritual. It was suggested that in order to get my children to change their behavior, I needed to learn how to change mine first! Although it felt awkward at the beginning, many of the tips and strategies in this book are still working. Things are going much better in our house. If you have preschoolers like me, I also recommend taking a look at "The Pocket Parent", a small very practical reference guide with the same philosophy, formatted differently... alphabetically for quick access to "sanity savers" for behaviors like, biting, hitting, interrupting, lying, and whining. Both books have helped me to make positive changes in communicating more effectively with my kids.
Also recommended: THE POCKET PARENT: Hundreds of answers targeted exclusively to parents of 2's, 3's, 4's, & 5's

Thank God for Elizabeth and her wonderful book Kid Cooperation!!
This is a great book with lots of excellent advice on how to achieve cooperation from your children in a way that makes everyone a winner! Elizabeth is clear, straightforward and down to earth, making her book a joy to read.
This book is packed with real-life examples, and also takes into consideration that every family is different, and every child is different. Her advice is simple, and I have found it easy to apply. I loved this book so much not just for it's common sense, but also because the author is, again, down to earth! Her advice is geared to situations that all parents can relate to. I felt as though I was reading about myself!
I recommend this book to anyone who has, or works around children. The fact that it's easy to read makes it so I could get it finished even with an extremely tight schedule. Like I said before, it was an absolute joy to read. I found it enlightening, and I want every parent to know how wonderful this book is in helping with the day-to-day adventures of raising children. My only regret is that I didn't get it even sooner.
