    This is the best book I have ever read about being a parent. Not

    This is the best book I have ever read about being a parent. Not just to help to be a parent it also helped me to understand why I am the way I am with my kids.

    Awesome!

    I read this book before my 11 year old was born, and since then, I've read it twice more. It is a great resource that parents everywhere should use!

    Wow!

    This should be mandatory reading for all parents. Great ideas! Easy and fun to read! And most importantly... doable! Thanks Ms. Coloroso

    Want Great Kids? Make this book your bible!

    This is the best child rearing book ever - I have been parenting 3 children for 22 years, and got this book when my kids were young. I kept re-reading it over the years when different issues arose. Her methods are common sense and if you try them & keep using them you all will be happier! As a result, my kids have been nice to be around at home, with other kids and out in the world. I now have 3 lovely people who are close to adult hood now. Thank you Barbara for giving me and my children this gift!

    The best $14.00 I've ever spent!

    This book contains most of the common childhood problems (along with some of the not-so-common ones), the explanations on dealing with them, and the solutions to preventing unhealthy parenting. I read the book completely and now refer to it daily for assistance. I have recommended this book, numerous times, to my friends and many of my parents dealing with discipline issues. It is outstanding!! And I only hope that I may someday hear Mrs. Coloroso in person. Check out her website: http://www.kidsareworthit.com

    This is a GREAT book!

    Barbara Colorosa does a fabulous job of making good parenting seem plausible. She gives specific suggestions in how to handle specific situations which makes all this seem like I can actually do it. The other day, during one of my kids' insistence on not doing what I asked, I thought of Barbara's advice in handling manipulative behavior (I was skeptical it would work...), and gave it a shot. It WORKED! My kids don't quite know what to do, but I can tell you I'm a believer. We are all MUCH happier! I think we would all have happier kids and parents if everyone read her book.

    Barbara hates REAL parents

    Too idealistic,and accusatory for my liking, I bought the book in the hopes of improving my parenting skills, but all that I got out of it was a specific label for my bad parenting strategies! I bet her kids were raised by a nanny 99.9% of the time anyway so I am not going to read any more of her books.
