"Julie knows exactly what kids need--love and limits--and she demonstrates how to deliver both with ten no-nonsense principles that really work."--Dr. Kevin Leman, author of Have a New Kid by Friday

Moms get a lot of advice about the best way to raise their kids. But all of this well-meaning (and often conflicting) counsel can be paralyzing. Julie Barnhill says, "Enough already!"

Unapologetically raucous and refreshingly relevant, Raising Kids with Love and Limits offers you a dose of reality and a way to calm your fears about raising children. Julie Barnhill shows you how to

say no like you mean it
stop overanalyzing every tiny detail
communicate truthfully and effectively with your child
and more

You can be confident, loving, and in charge. And your kids will thank you for it--someday.
