Supernanny: How to Get the Best from Your Children by Jo Frost
33 of 38 people found the following review helpful
Supernanny is certainly a good looking book. A lot of effort went into taking a little bit of information and making it go far. Seems like there was more effort put into the graphic arts aspect of Supernanny than to the actual content. I found this very disappointing.

I think it is important that you not become too distracted by your child's sex. I think that, although differences do exists, healthy parenting has many constants. These constants are presented in Systemic Parenting. Those areas of differences that do exist between the sexes are well presented in Raising Boys. I think the parent who reads both… Read more
