This was an excellent book. Being a strong-willed child (SWC) myself, I bought this book to help my relationship with my own SWC. I learned so much more about myself, and now I have learned how to 'deal' with my child! This book comes from inside the mind of an SWC and is very helpful in tackling their unique thought process. I am looking foward to using the techniques in this book to work towards a better relationship with my daughter! Thanks to Cynthia and her speaking out on behalf of all the SWC's!

This book was just what I needed. It's short and sweet. After a brief explanation of what a strong willed child is and how their minds work, it jumps right into practical strategies to use. The bottom line is making requests vs. demands. And I think that's easier to do once you understand why demands result in power struggles and conflict. There were some parts that were too Christian for me, including a whole chapter about right vs. wrong, which addressed the Bible's commandment to obey parents. As an atheist, I just skipped those parts. The rest of the book was still very helpful. I bought this book while reading it because I know it's one I will want to read again. There are some sections on dealing with older children and teens that I'd like to come back to when my son is a little older. Now I just need my husband to read the key chapters (1-3, and 5), so we can be on the same page with our parenting style. http://www.momsradius.com/2015/10/book-review-you-cant-make-me.html
