Format: Paperback
John Rosemond has an uncanny knack for getting right to the heart of whatever parenting problem has got you tied in knots. He provides (often humorous) insights into the basis for many common problems as well as practical solutions. His suggestions can also be easily adapted to other situations, and are usually very simple to implement. Basically, he empowers parents to take action while reassuring us that most of us already know what is best for our children. He gives us tools to use to enforce our values, but does not tell us what those values "ought" to be. This was the most useful parenting book I ever read and I highly recommend it for anyone who spends time with kids (not just parents). You won't ever regret buying it.

Format: Paperback
None of that complicated psycho-babble! Very straightforward comments and ideas based on old-fashioned values and common-sense. He can be a bit on the harsh side now and then, but if you filter that out this is a book full of good thoughts and ideas. Also recommended: Kid Cooperation (How to Stop Yelling, Nagging and Pleading) by Elizabeth Pantley

i was at my wits end in how i could get my 3 children to listen, cooperate, and get along. this book put everything into a whole new perspective. i felt empowered after reading it(which took about 3 hours because i couldn't put it down) and things didn't seem so impossible. he made me laugh and realize that these problems happen to everyone at some stage in their children's upbringing. it all seemed so common sense i wish i would've thought of it first.

All parents should read this book, if only to reinforce the reminder that parents should be in charge of the household and children should be loved and taught. The author's comments on tolerance, humor, common sense approaches to parenting and discipline are good reminders to us all - even if we already know them (or think we do!).

Excellent book for all parents! 19 Oct. 2001
By Leah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I believe every parent should read this book and keep it by their bedside while raising their children. Dr. Rosemond doesn't claim to know everything but his methods have been proven to work time and time again. Every suggestion I have followed with my son has worked. The parent should be in charge, not the child. You will not regret buying this book.
