Not finished reading this yet, but just after applying the principles from the first chapter or two, I am seeing results. Less stress in the home, a more level head, enjoying each other more instead of feeling like a dictator with a yelling problem. Thank you so much for giving us guidance in parenting. You could also call this book, Parenting for Dummies, it really would be great if your children came with instructions :)
After reading Have a New Kid By Friday, and following the plan, our home is nearly stress free. If things start to get stressful again, it's because we have dropped the ball & didn't follow the book. As long as we follow this plan, everything runs SO smoothly. BEWARE though, it does require you to take a long, HONEST look at yourself as a parent. So thankful I ordered it!
Wish I had this book 25 years ago! I have seen results since putting into action the game plan in this book. Has it gotten easier? Not at first, but I have peace! When I get it wrong, I go back and start over. This game plan takes guts, but stick to your guns, don't give in, and you will see results!
