Parents often confuse love with overindulgence, afraid to subject their children to a moment of frustration or deprive them of anything they might desire. But in order to become resilient and responsible adults, children must learn that they can't always get their way.
Since motherhood is now her most important role, beloved actress Marilu Henner has often turned to Dr. Ruth Velikovsky Sharon, a highly respected psychoanalyst, for advice on raising her own children. This practical, accessible guidebook that they've compiled together shows parents how to:
- Establish parent-child contracts and effective methods of discipline
- Handle temper tantrums, bedtime issues, sibling rivalry, lying, and much more
- Help their children tolerate frustration and become comfortable with difficult feelings
Filled with dozens of real-life questions, practical advice, and humorous anecdotes, I Refuse to Raise a Brat is a witty and useful resource to help parents raise secure and self-reliant children.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book's approach is all wrong. It lacks awareness of child development, and a positive emphasis. I strongly recomment Parent Effectiveness Training, books by Dr. Sears (who has raised 9 children of his own), and the book Kids Are Worth It.
Choose any other book on the shelf if you are interested in accurate, practical, and useful information. There is a complete lack of knowledge of child development. The premise makes no sense whatsoever. It is not even worth putting in the garage sale pile. I threw the book in the trash.
well i think that this book may be all wrong to all people or not but it doesn't mater to me i'm getting faustrated with this and maybe you shold raise children the way you want to and the way you think is right i mean gosh !
