"I liked it a lot. I've learned new tricks, even though I've attended your parenting classes. It reminded me of how important it is to involve the children in making rules." Cassandra Jardine (Vermilion). "For busy parents, this book brings clarity and simplicity to everyday situations. You will find lots of good advice in these pages... and the cartoons bring it all home to make it easy to understand." Bonnie Harris (Piatkus)."

It leads the reader though:
· The difference between what children need and what they may want.
· How to encourage and reinforce desired behaviours
· Giving your child positive attention
· Why and how to avoid an argument
· Keeping children in the loop
· Dealing with Anger, and preparing for success
· Play, sharing & siblings
· Healthy living in terms of exercise and nutrition
The book was enjoyable, and easy to read.
Yet it rang true and clearly comes from a great deal of experience.
I have three children and the examples and cartoons reminded me of the joys and also of some of the awkward moments.
For a more harmonious existence I heartily recommend this book.
