Overview

Don't be misled by the title... this is not a book about how to get your kids to eat their veggies, though it can certainly help with that issue, along with giving you guidance on how to tackle a lot of other behavior problems many parents face every day. Dr. Tim Riley uses common sense, clinical experience and a healthy dose of humor to explain the reasons behind these all too common and often frustrating behaviors and what you as a parent can do about them.
Among the many tools presented in this can-do book, parents will learn:

- Four (or maybe five) really useful principles of behavior

- Six simple (but not always easy) steps to more effective discipline and motivation

- What to do when you like what your child is doing, and when you don't

- Specific responses to some of the most common problem behaviors
