Sometime, you are so upset, and you don't know what to do anymore, check if you can find any tips from this book. But this book is mostly for above 3 years old, and not everything work, just a reference. But if you are always on the good way of parenting, you don't really need it, and if you are not on the good way, then, it does not really help, the solution is not the tips, it is what guides you.

Don't think twice... just buy it! The tips are awesome and they work. You'll see immediate results. One of the strengths of this book is that for each situation, the authors step back and put the reader in the childs shoes and then offers a number of solutions. I now have an arsenal of ways of handling the kids in a loving, yet firm fashion!

Have you ever wished that your child came with an instruction book? Perfect Parenting: The Dictionary of 1,000 Parenting Tips might be just what you have been looking for! This book consists of suggestions on how to deal with all those situations that are sent to try your patience and all those issues which no-one seems to know how to handle.
This book's format is perfect for the busy parent. In alphabetical order and cross-referenced, you will find suggestions on how to cope with everything from allowances to yelling and screaming. Examples include: bath, not wanting one; nightmares; siblings, jealousy; and the ever-worrying TANTRUMS. For each problem, the situation is described and then parents are challenged to "think about it" before being given several possible solutions. The suggestions offered are wonderfully helpful and insightful. There is a wealth of fantastic advice here! As always, Elizabeth Pantley manages to give advice that WORKS, is EASY, and is RESPECTFUL of children. Whether you are a new parent or an old hand, you are bound to benefit from her words of wisdom.
What is particularly perfect about Perfect Parenting is that it is a "one-stop-shop" for a whole gamut of problems, many of which are simply not broached in any other book. In the one book, almost every conceivable parental concern is covered. This is a book which you definitely want to keep in a prominent position on the bookshelf, as you are going to want to refer to it again and again!

Format: Paperback
"Perfect Parenting" is a very handy parenting guide. The book is unique in that it covers each parenting dilemma with not one, but several (and sometimes many), possible solutions. This enables parents to gear solutions to their own parenting style. I found this to be an extremely useful and clever feature.
The book is written in dictionary-style. It's most useful as a resource guide sitting on the shelf patiently awaiting the next parenting conundrum.
I like this format because I hate sitting down and just reading a parenting book. By the time an actual problem arises I've forgotten everything I've read. I would rather use parenting books on an as-needed basis rather than reading them from cover-to-cover. "Perfect Parenting" fits this bill "perfectly."
I gave the book the acid test and used it immediately on some of my own parenting situations. We had the little matter of siblings disrespecting each other on a daily--hourly?--basis and I found some helpful hints under "Siblings, hateful emotions" (no, I'm not making this category up--kinda scary, but it fit my situation).
This little exercise did, however, point out one of the book's shortcomings regarding basic organization. The book has no index (one of my personal literary pet peeves) which makes it more difficult to find information. The book does have a comprehensive index-like table of contents, but in my opinion it does not replace the need for a true index.
But don't let this small quibble discourage you from this book. Overall, the book is excellent and I have turned to it many times.
BOTTOM LINE: It's a buy. Keep it handy for all those challenging parenting moments when your brain can't work fast enough!

Format: Paperback
Elizabeth sent me this book so that I could review it for her and what a fabulous book it is. This is a really easy to use book, you don't have to read cover to cover to get your info. The format is in an easy topic look-up style and I refer to it often with my own four children! This book has 319 pages and not one page is what I would consider a waste of space or "filler". The parenting tips are written from common sense no-nonsense thinking and I can endorse this book. The foreward was written by North America's very own William Sears, M.D.

Format: Paperback
This is an amazing book with multiple solutions for every imaginable child-raising problem. I find the solutions to be one step ahead of the standard, typical advice -- which often doesn't work! For example, in the section on picky eaters you won't find the usual advice to "just make them eat what's on their plate" (Those experts obviously don't have kids like mine!) Instead this author gives REAL solutions like: "Allow your child the option to have toast or cereal for dinner ONE day a week. When he knows he can skip one meal he'll make a decision to eat things that aren't favorites and save his 'cereal day' for the day you're having the food he likes least." That worked like a charm in our house of five kids! No more nightly dinner battles! Just one kid sitting with a bowl of cereal LOL This book covers the typical problems perfectly, but also covers unique problems with flair. I use it almost every day for quick tips.
