JGHmschlAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Reference for Raising "Stubborn" ChildreOctober 12, 2013JGHmschlAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5No other books have helped me with my strong-willed child as well as this one has. Other books are so vague; I really needed "how to's", and this definitely has them. I now understand that my child isn't necessarily doing things just to "be disobedient", which was what we had originally thought. Our approach was ruining our relationship with our child. This book has saved our parenting skills and has helped provide our child with a more functional childhood.
SydneyAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5thanks for the help!July 10, 2013SydneyAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The book arrived on a day when my sister-in-law stopped in and told me of the difficulties her daughter was going through with their 3 year old. I told her that I hadn't read the book yet but had listened to some of Cynthia Tobias' audio talks and was intrigued by what she had to say, and sent the book home with her to give to her daughter. When I saw my niece a week later, she thanked me for the book and said that it was an answer to her prayers! When she got the book, she immediately started reading it and put some of the first ideas into motion and things were already improving with her child's behavior! She was excited to read the rest of the book. I have now also ordered her the other audio files of Cynthia Tobias and ordered another set for one of my other sisters!
