I was frustrated by what to do to get my children to listen, take ownership, and just basically behave. After reading this book and using the strategies suggested, my job as a stay-at-home mom was made a lot easier. Try it, it really works! I have recommended this book to all my friends who struggle with how to discipline their kids.
