I just got this book and read about half way thru. This is an amazing resource! Along with What to Expect When Your Expecting, this should be required reading for any parent out there (moms or dads). What I like best is that it's not a bunch of psycho-babble or condescending doctor-talk. It has reality based examples and really easy to follow suggestions. I tried one this morning trying to get my 6 year old ready for school, and for the first time in months, was able to avoid a morning melt down! Thank you to the authors for a great book and help. Definitely helpful and well worth the purchase.

Great book. Easy to read. My husband and I could both agree on much of it, so that's a first. Should be given to teachers too.
