5.0 out of 5 stars Help for Everyone who works with Kids Nov. 8 2003
By A Customer
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.

By A Customer
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST parenting book out there Aug. 14 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book gives you all the tools to need to raise good kids and enjoy the process. The basic tools are easy to learn and effective to use. It contains simple ideas that make sense and work wonders. For just one example (there are many), I used to yell at my kids to clean the kitchen and do their homework. Now I just ask, "What are you doing first, your homework or the kitchen?" They pick! It sounds simple I know but it's amazing how often it works. I AM yelling less and they ARE cooperating more!

5.0 out of 5 stars The only parenting book you'll need! March 25 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The minute I saw this book on the shelf I had to have it. I wanted to stop yelling, nagging, pleading and get my kids to cooperate. Who wouldn't? I have three children and have been using the many ideas in this book since I purchased it a year and a half ago. Each time I read it - either cover to cover or just glancing over the great reminder pages - I gain more useful ideas to help me be a successful parent. As my children enter new stages in their life and new parenting challenges are faced, I have the confidence to tackle them head-on by using the techniques that I have learned in this book. I have recommended Kid Cooperation to all my friends and I highly recommend it to you as well. I can't imagine what my family life would be like if it wasn't for this first rate parenting book. It is a must have for every parent.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lecturing author! Oct. 6 2003
Format:Paperback
I did not find this book helpful at all. The author tends to lecture while putting parents who unknowingly make mistakes into "cutesy" little categories like "Nagging Nellie, Whining Wilma, Betty Briber, Counting Casey and Bret Threat".
I don't know about you, but I don't want to be labeled and then lectured. I want good, sound advice from someone who knows that no kid or parent is ALWAYS perfect.
The first turn-off for me in this book was a "quiz" that's supposed to tell you what kind of parenting style you have. All this did was put the "good" parents and the "bad" parents in two separate piles with praise going to the "good" or Balanced Parents -- "oh you perfect little parents, you've done your homework and shouldn't even be reading this book!"
I think this author needs a few more parenting classes herself!
Do yourself a favor. Read 1-2-3 Magic instead!

5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed this book but wnat more detail. Nov. 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wisdom : When What You're Doing Isn't Working Feb. 9 2004
Format:Paperback
Parenting is the hardest job you'll ever have. But, it is the most fulfilling. Children don't come with Operating Manuals. So, often we find ourselves "winging it" when instructing and guiding our children. We are then reminded by outcomes that this is NOT the best approach.
Elizabeth Pantley's book KID COOPERATION... is the best OPERATING Manual we have read. And the ideas are real experiences of Elizabeth and others. If one approach to a child rearing event doesn't work well there are usually others you can employ that will.
Our journey with our two boys was at a point where we were so frustrated! What we were doing was NOT working. Now, with the advice and experience of Elizabeth we feel alot more confident in our decisions of discipline and guidance.
We liked the book so much we plan to look into other books she has written.
