The book arrived in a timely manner and was in excellent condition!
Maybe it's just me, because I have ZERO experience with kids, but this book is fast becoming a HUGE eye-opener. I recently got a job teaching creative writing to grades K-8 at a charter school, so I thought that picking up a parenting book would be a good idea (not to mention the fact that I'll get some use out of it later when I have some rugrats of my own!). I chose the EXACT right book. I know that in this day and age, the responsibilities of parenting seem to have fallen by the wayside with the general population. There's this whole "children's entitlement" movement which, frankly, I just don't get. This book illustrates some very simple, basic points for interacting with your children in a positive, but firm way. Children crave structure, I can see it when they act out in the mall or the grocery store, and if you're the parent that CONSTANTLY has to go through temper-tantrums and power struggles and general hysteria when dealing with your child, for the sake of your sanity, get this book! I will be keeping this book forever, and will probably pass it on to a younger friend when they start dealing with the terrorism that is raising a child. I'm so glad I found this text, I now feel more prepared than ever to teach this class :)
