5.0 out of 5 stars WHY THIS BOOK IS A MUST HAVE, 23 Mar. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Backtalk: Four Steps to Ending Rude Behavior in Your Kids (Paperback)
There are so many times when your kids seem to know exactly what to say to make you want to drive off a cliff and you don't of course because you love them. However, with this book and the knowledge you impart from it you can feel safe in your car again. For example, when your kid refuses to do anything you ask him to do (ANYTHING), or even communicate with you at all but will, however, talk in code to the other parent or parent surrogate what are you going to do? (i.e. something has to be done) Once you read this book you'll know exactly what to do. I do now, but I didn't then and the differnce is this book. From this book you can glean that the authoress took a lot of time to come up with her ideas and schemes and not only that, they work. My kids, and I have three of them of varying ages (I guarantee they are NOT triplets), are different now. For example, I picked up two of them from school yesterday (the other one rides the bus) and instead of shrieking at me as per usual, they remained silent, perfectly still. No what she calls "back talk" at all. That was a change (the no back talk part). And I believe it is because of this book about back talk that is causing me to feel grateful (finally). So many thanks to the authoress the result of whose work is this book. I learned that it's not worth it driving around wanting to drive off a cliff but never doing it (in terms of a metaphor). You learn, finally, that the "cliff" isn't the answer and you'll be glad you never considered it seriously. (Just like the donut isn't the real thing the overeater is yearning for -- it's something else. The donut is just the substitute for it). Thanks.
