When it comes to dealing with a difficult child or, at least, a difficult situation, Dr. Borba has the right attitude! Her writing is clear and entertaining; her suggestions are practical and down-home. I suggest parents (and teachers, too) get their hands on this title immediately. It will benefit all of us, adults and children alike.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
