Book Description

20 April 2004 General Self-Help
Does your kid never take no for an answer and demand things go his way? Do her theatrics leave you drained at the end of the day? Are you resorting to bribes and threats to get your kid to do chores? Does he cheat, complain, or blame others for his problems? Do you feel you’re running a hotel instead of a home? Are you starting to feel like your child’s personal ATM machine? What happened? You thought you were doing the best for your child and didn’t set out to raise a selfish, insensitive, spoiled kid. In her newest book, Don’t Give Me That Attitude! parenting expert Michele Borba offers you an effective, practical, and hands–on approach to help you work with your child to fix that very annoying but widespread youthful characteristic, attitude . If you have a child who is arrogant, bad–mannered, bad–tempered, a cheat, cruel, demanding, domineering, fresh, greedy, impatient, insensitive, irresponsible, jealous, judgmental, lazy, manipulative, narrow–minded, noncompliant, pessimistic, a poor loser, selfish, uncooperative, ungrateful, or unhelpful, this is the book for you!

2.0 out of 5 stars How to make parenting miserable 27 Mar 2014
By minty
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found it a bit hard-going to be honest, lots of to dos and not-to-dos, and a lengthy tome at 418 pages! Very unrealistic, a turgid American style, and there were far too many detailed instructions and recommendations more appropriate to a clinical setting! e.g. some of them very specific e.g. get your young child a piggy-bank. I mean, I think that's a nice gesture, but when it becomes part of a "to do" list to encourage yet another area of development and expertise for your child, it becomes very turgid IMO. I'm sure the book is well-meaning but I think only the most insensitive of parents would find anything especially useful in there. And the constant analysis of every little thing I thought honestly takes the joy out of being a parent (and a child). Just my two cents worth.

I much preferred the earthier, more realistic "Get Out of My Life but First take me and Alex into Town" by Tony Wolf and Suzanne Franks - admittedly for the teenager.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended For All Parents 3 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've read all of Michele Borba's books. To me, she stands for the kind of parent I want to be: you can't just sit back and expect everything to go well. You have to get engaged and if there's a problem you have to deal with it. I love my kid -- he's great-- but he's been home lately with a back talking attitude. I couldn't believe his flippant tone and I didn't know how to deal with it. And then I picked up Borba's new book. The great part is that I was able to go to contents, find the attitude, and immediately turn to the section and get point by point steps to do to turn it around. It's been only three days, but I'm already seeing a big change in my child. I've read alot of other parent books. Most are so filled with theory and vague generalities. The great thing about Michele Borba's books is that they are very specific and action oriented and give you real live activities you can do. Try it and you'll see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic & practical ways to boost kids' character. 4 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm a real fan of Michele Borba's books so I must admit I've been waiting for Don't Give Me That Attitude! This one is one of her best. I'm a counselor and deal with kids with "attitudes" (though most parents would call them behavior problems) -- manipulative, defiant, cheating, arrogant, you name it. The problem is there really wasn't much out there in the way of specifics to help parents. But these makeovers for bad attitudes are realistic and specific. There are so many strategies and ideas .. checklists.. resources.. and stepby step guidelines. The only thing I'd caution a parent about is not to think you have to do it all. Just turn to the attitude you think needs tuning up -- and dig in. The book is a goldmine!~

Finally, a book that gives real solutions to common and embarrassing behaviors I see in so many kids today! As a teacher, I highly recommend this book to all parents who want to really improve their child's behavior. Dr. Borba's book is easy to follow and filled with practical, simple solutions that really do work! I hope that parents will make this the next book to read on every nightstand in America.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just Good For Dealing With Kids 27 Mar 2011
By F. McLemore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I don't have kids, so I admit, it might seem a little strange that I would be interested in a book dealing with kids' bad attitudes. But I saw this at the library, and picked it up out of curiousity. Believe it or not, I found some good solutions for dealing with people in general with bad attitudes - like coworkers. People in offices often ACT like children. The chapter on bossy, domineering kids could be applied to coworkers like that -and I've had plenty of them. There always seems to be a "bossy boots" in an office who appoints himself or herself as the "leader" of a project, without any real authority to do so - like an actual supervisor has. That chapter has good ideas for that situation.

And this is good for dealing with other peoples' kids with bad attitudes - like when your friends' kids decide to act up. You don't want to take their parents' place, of course, but sometimes kids think they can use a bad attitude with you because you're not their parent. I don't let that happen anyway. But this book gives me even better ideas that I already had for dealing with this.

So, this is good for more than it might seem at first. Interesting book.
