This book is full of techniques and tips that really make sense. I studied psychology a long time ago and have always believed in it. This book actually shows me how to put things into practice rather than just knowing the basic principles.

I love this book. I am fostering a child who came from an extremely dysfunctional home. The transformation is astounding! His behaviour changed dramatically! I am also a teacher and use the methods in the book constantly they are very useful and help maintain a pleasant and structured atmosphere. I definitely recommend this book to parents, foster parents and teachers.

There are many good ideas in the book and I think a lot of parents will find it helpful.

I didn't like the way the author suggesting talking down to kids. I did not like the writing style of this book. Quite Simply it just wasn't for me but I do think it can benefit others so I will be donating this book to the local library. There was little humour in the book and the examples of how you can easily traumatize your child were daunting to read and over-exaggerated in my opinion.

I admit, I had to return this book because I found the author's tone too patronizing. The ideas toward creating a positive household were okay, if not revolutionary. However, overall I did not relate to her rather humourless style, and her warnings of how failure to follow these methods were sure to create psychologically scarred kids. She lost me at the point she suggested that you not use your kid's name in a negative context, because this would then cause him ore her to have a negative self image. I liked the idea of discussing parental anger and anxiety, as this is something I would like to work on, but her ideas of writing lines etc. did not resonate with me at all. I found The Good Mother Myth by Alison Schaefer to be a better book with somewhat similar content, and an approach that seemed to address the realities of parenting with humor.
