Overview

John Rosemond's latest work covers every conceivable aspect of parenting from Allowances to Sibling rivalry with the same characteristic wit and practical wisdom that millions of parents have cherished in his six previous books, including Making the "Terrible" Twos Terrific, John Rosemond's Six-Point Plan for Raising Happy, Healthy Children and A Family of Value.
This day-to-day collection contains 366 tips or "reflections" for battle-worn parents, one per dated page. True to form, the reflections are often humorous, always common-sensical, and always thought provoking. Taken together, they illuminate the complex web that exists between child rearing, marriage, and the family.



Rosemond's philosophy harkens back to a simpler time when "because I said so," was the only reason a parent ever needed to give a child. Nothing has changed, says Rosemond. Successful parenting still calls for the same basic ingredients that worked for thousands of previous generations. By following his old-fashioned, common sense advice, parents can avoid raising children who are spoiled and sassy and deal effectively with daily problems as diverse as bedwetting and boredom, territoriality and television.
