Format: Hardcover
The book is supposed to offer advice on how to stop your child from hitting others, and actions to take if he/she does hit another child. The title is a misnomer as it only has one page on this subject, and the title is a ruse to buy another in these series of books which are basically all the same with a different title. I can imagine a parent buying this book in desperation when they have a child with this problem, but believe me this book does not give good advice on how to deal with the issue.

The solutions in this book were ridiculous. Basically reward a child when they are being naughty. As for giving clay to a child who is having a tantrum, I'd only advise this if you want to scrub clean an entire room.

Misguided, probably well intentioned, but ultimately very poor parenting or carer advice. If you are going to buy one book, the best I have found is The Good, the Bad and the Irritating: A Practical Approach for Parents of Children who are Attention Seeking: A Practical Approach for Parents of Children Who Are Attention Seeking (Lucky Duck Books) as it is a much better book. It helps you deal with, and defuse, tantrums or misbehaviour that can escalate with any child.

I have two young daughters who regularly knock seven bells out of each other - sometimes with this book. It does't seem to have chaged much by itself but is a useful part of a broader programe of behavioural management.

this book shows that Karen Katz has, at best, no understanding of children. Every page starts "I'm mad!" Followed by a scenario that the child wants to hit someone or something. The flaps are supposed to suggest an alternative to the desire to hit, but are far fetched and ridiculous.

I would suggest that, even using the American interpretation, that mad is a poor way of explaining s child's feeling when they want to hit. More likely they are simply bored, tired, trying , experimenting, or just being a plain rascal. I promise you that this will be the worst book you will buy. Hopefully there are alternatives out there, I know that I am going to look elsewhere.

Words fail me on this one! Political correctness gone mad.

The suggestions for dealing with misbehaviour are fatuous. Only one page explores hitting, then the book moves on to mistreating animals, throwing a tantrum, damaging another child's property and tongue pulling. The suggested remedies? In order: the adult should fetch out the pots, pans and wooden spoons for the child to clatter and bang them and add unwanted noise to the misbehaviour; fetch out the clay and let the child attack that instead, adding mess-making to the problem; conjure up autumn leaves (bit tricky this, nine months of the year) for the child to mash up; produce an art pad and easel for the child to scribble on; and, best of all, this is my personal favourite, when the child pulls his tongue out at Mum, give him an ice lolly to lick with said tongue.

The final page asks the child if he feels better now, to which he replies yes and states that he's not mad anymore - unlike any adult who follows this advice and expects it to modify or extinguish misbehaviour. What were the writer and the publisher thinking? Stark raving mad.

My son loves this book! We got it because he was pushing people at nursery and it all seems to have stopped. He still chooses this to read quite a lot.
