I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is full of tips on how to turn your nagging into directives that you can actually enforce, how to share control with your child so he can feel good about himself and learn how to make good choices, and how to consequence her with empathy, not anger, so she accepts responsibilty for her mistakes and learns from them. I appreciated the chapter that dealt with the importance of meeting your infant's needs lovingly and consistently (the foundation of attachment and trust). Too many mothers are still being told to let their newborns cry themselves to sleep or to feed them on a set schedule! Children develop 'wants' as toddlers.

This wonderful skills book helps me figure out how to handle any number of problems my child might be having, from throwing a tantrum to saying 'I hate you.' Another, quite different book I've found indispensable is '101 Secrets a Cool Mom Knows,' which give me quick, easy ways to solve all sorts of problems that might crop up, from my child being cranky at dinnertime (teach her to hang a spoon on her nose! it really works!) to her being afraid of the dark (teach her the secret of using her 'averted vision' to help her see better in the dark). Both these books are must-haves!

I saw Jim Fay in person at a parenting lecture and he was fabulous! He is warm, witty, and wise--as are his books. Parenting with "love and logic" has relieved much of the daily stress and anger in our family. We seem to communicate in ways that result in more cooperation from my kids. I am so glad Jim has now written a book exclusively for the very challenging early years. Even the best parent wiith a preschooler ocassionally wonders, "Who's really in charge here anyway?" I feel so incompetent sometimes...I appreciate the easy access organization of this book that enables me to get some quick advice along with some welcome reassurance that I'm not the only parent who has these problems. I recently found another book that has hundreds of helpful tips and noticed that Jim Fay is quoted in it. 'The Pocket Parent" is not written in paragraphs, but rather short bullets of friendly practical information organized into an A-Z compedium. It's so great to be able to quickly look up a troublesome behavior such as: biting, bedtime and mealtime refusals, lying, whining, tantrums, and "I hate you's," -- immediately finding some sensible ideas to try. The philosophies of both these books are very similar. Both books offer alternatives to yelling, bribing, threatening, critizing, and nagging that aren't working anyway! If you have a pre-schooler (2, 3, 4, or 5 years old) that is testing your sanity, I highly recommend "Love and Logic Magic for Early Childhood" and 'The Pocket Parent." Both books are helpful, humorous and worth keeping handy for when you need some quick advice or just some empathy on one of those really bad days when you think you are about to lose your mind!

I started using this book about 4 weeks ago. I have not raised my voice to my 3 yr old since the day I started reading the book. His attitude has changed and Uh-Oh does the trick!!

Positives: It works! The fundamental theories and tips in this book have been SO effective with our head strong toddler; It is a quick read; There are helpful summaries at the end of each chapter; There are practical illustrations, not just high level advice that is hard to apply. Negatives: It is kind of cheesy; A couple of the illustrations were far fetched (but others were great)

Not crazy about this book, I thought some of the stories were a little odd and when some stories were compared to one another based on the types of behaviors exhibited they didn't make sense.

The book was recommended by a teacher friend of mine and I really enjoyed it. It's full of practical, funny and de-stressing parenting advice that it helpful, realistic and entertaining. It also has some stories that surely, will make you chuckle. It's an easy read, too.

This book and others in the series were recommended by our social worker handling our adoption. It was an easy and informative read and had many good ideas. I appreciate the verbage they provided and they backed up their ideas with real-life examples. Like any "helping" book I think you take the nuggets, use what works and leave the rest.
