Our daughter became so out of control that we had to resort to sending her to a youth therapy ranch where she has been for 8 months. When we went to visit her, the staff gave us this book to read and it has been so helpful to understand how to be the parent in control that we felt for so long we were not. Our daughter is progressing wonderful in the program but it has been costly in so many ways. I highly recommend reading and incorporating these principals to regain order in your home. If you love your child, you must take the steps to gain control.

In this strange era of parenting, where parents are attempting to negotiate with and befriend their children, they are caught in a never never land of distress. I'm a counselor and a teacher, and for the most part, I have to teach parents how to parent. It's all about reliable boundaries. The job of the child is to press against those boundaries constantly and see if you mean what you say. This book is generally one which promotes some positive skills, like 'sponging' up the argument. Sponge up their protests and do not permit any more negotiation. It works. I do it every single day. A good book at a good price. Every reader will gain some insight. If they don't need it, they'll at least be grateful their kids aren't the ones portrayed in it....Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
