This book is helpful, and the summary I downloaded on Parentsdigest.com highlighted the fact that the information and resources available on the book were organized in a way that made everything easy to find.

As a mother of 2 girls, 4 & 6, I seem to be baffled a lot! My 4 yr old is quite bossy and spends the majority of her time whining, crying, or yelling! This book is straight-forward and very easy to read. Ms. Kelly addresses how to stop specific bad behaviors, like the ones I mentioned above, and she also shows you ways to encourage good behavior. One solution she provides to yelling and whining in a car is to pull over to the side and calmly tell your child that the car will not move until she has calmed down and can keep quiet. I have threatened to do this in the past when the girls are fighting in the car but have never followed through with it. Today, I did it!! We were parked along side the road for less than a minute, and they were both quiet the rest of the way. I enjoyed this book and can see that I will be referring back to it a lot!
