    A reviewer

    I really learned alot from this book. It helps you to take a step back and really look at the source of a child's individual problem and how to figure out what works best for that child and his/her personality. I would highly recommend this book for teachers and parents alike for that child you can't seem to motivate or that child who thinks she's/he's boss and all of those inbetween. It even helped me figure out my mother! haha
