MZ4 Stars Out Of 5Really works!February 25, 2015MZQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4As a mother of a three-year-old and a two-year-old, I found this book to be full of wisdom and easy-to-follow advice. I already put into practice some of the action plans suggested, and they worked as a charm! And a happier mom makes a happier home :-D
Being consistent is key... The only thing I found missing is some words on the special needs child (although ADHD is addressed,) since there are kids that need a different approach. I highly recommend this book.
bkonkleDallas, TXAge: 25-34Gender: male2 Stars Out Of 5The book itself is great! The eBook process isn't.August 19, 2011bkonkleDallas, TXAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 1Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2First off, this book has been a godsend to my wife and I. We were at the end of our rope, and this book has done a great job of showing us that we are not alone, and helping us take steps to correct our son's behavior.
The eBook process, however, was terrible. At first I couldn't even find where to download the book. When I finally did find it, I ran into more trouble. I am a Mac user, and I wanted to transfer the book to my Nook reader. Since the book is tied to Adobe digital rights management, and they don't provide a Mac app, it was impossible. I had to start up Parallels and boot a Windows virtual machine in order to install the Adobe software. Once there, I found out that there are a limited number of times that I can transfer the book to a new machine. If I change computers a few times in the next 5 years or so, I may lose access to the book. This is a terrible user experience, and should most definitely be avoided. I would recommend against buying the eBook because the digital rights management attached to it make it a terrible experience.

I think that most of the discussion about the problem children did not stem from a lack of children knowing who the boss was but from a lack of understanding on the parents part. Check out Green instead.
IonaMissouriAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful insight!December 11, 2010IonaMissouriAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I highly recommend this book to all parents.
The book was well written and easy to read, I found it hard to put down.
The book gave wonderful understanding on the subject and practical ideas of how to change the situation it also encouraged me that if I stayed consistant that it would get better (and after time it did!). When I applied the lessons I learned from reading the book I actually became a better parent to my very strong willed child.
I first read the book 16 years ago when it was recommended to me by a friend, the new book has added information and is just a good, even better. I am passing this book on to another friend with small children.
shadowAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5November 28, 2010shadowAge: 55-65Gender: femaleWhen my oldest son started exhibiting very strong willed traits, I read this book at least once a year every year until he was 16 years old. It was such a valuabale tool. Now, as I see my young grandchildren also showing their strong wills, I wanted to get the book for their parents. I was very happy to see that it had been updated to meet the challenges of the "new strong willed" child.
