Format: Hardcover
Jo Frost gives many sensible suggesions for parents to try in order to get more compliance from the children. I don't agree with every technique but the majority of them sound like they might work for my family. We have already had success with our picky eaters following the advice in the book. Bedtime is much smoother too after using her strategies for keeping our son in his own bed all night long. I like this book for 3 main reasons: It is parent friendly without clinical or judgmental language, it is set up as a quick reference guide so you do not have to read the entire book to get some specific information to solve a specific behavior problem and it covers a wide spectrum of concerns for the early years (2's, 3's, 4's and 5's). We also like another parent friendly guide called "The Pocket Parent" for the exact same reasons. Both of these discipline guides have offered us many suggestions and solutions to gaining more cooperation from our children.

Format: Hardcover
This book is very colourful and attractive, but lacked in real content, it was a disappointment. I was hoping it could help me with my 3yr old twin girl's cheekiness and sleep anxiety, but it never really gets to the nitty gritty of behavioral issues or sleep problems.
I would suggest buying "Nanny Wisdom" by Kim Nicholson and Justine Walsh. A friend (that used to be a nanny) recommended this book to me. It has been a fantastic resource for me and my husband.

Format: Paperback
We've relied on this book since the birth of our son 6 months ago. It's practical, sensible and has all the answers you need. With such a new thing as parenting to master it's comforting knowing if you have a question there's a book with the answer (possibly a more up-to-date answer than your parents have...) and an explanation. It's also got useful medical/emergency things if you're in a panic which is handy.

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book. Jo Frost is a no nonsense expert on children and how to get the best out of them whilst maintaining their sense of discipline and respect. Very easy to read, easy and simple instructions and the reasons why. I would recommend this book to all parents, my husband loves it and he's not a reader so must be good!

Format: Paperback
I bought this for a friend of mine, and then decided maybe I needed it too! I love the TV programme and found this book full of well illustrated advice on enjoying your toddlers and their progression, rather than refering to the 'terrible twos' or 'little terrors'. An enjoyable read with some helpful hints.

From watching Jo Frost on TV, this book explains everything and you can store all the advice on the bookshelf to refer to whenever you need it, rather than having to remember it all. Great buy for any parent. Even before they have children.

Format: Paperback
Refreshing to find a publication not written by people who just read other peoples theories and then re-hash it as their own. This is a book full of practical skills learnt by experiance and hard work. If you want a step by step guide on reasons behind bad behaviour and practical guides to achieve the outcome you want with your children then here it is at last. This is by far the best book on the subject- if your prepared to put a little work in and implement the strategies outlined in easy to understand terms then the rewards are there for you. Its up to you.
