Format: Paperback
I am not, in general, a fan of parenting books. I tend to play it by ear, use common sense, focus on love and guidelines. So if I read this book, it's because I know and respect the author and I wanted to add my support.

I was so surprised at how much I loved reading the book - not just the advice, but the actual read. I think it's because every section inspired me to reach higher, to do more for my kids. It addressed issues I was only vaguely aware of, and gave me concrete methods for overcoming them. And a plus - it is incredibly easy to read because each chapter is short, with advice grouped according to the age group.

I have already implemented many of the suggestions, and my children remember the things we've spoken about, and are enthusiastic to put them into practice (i.e. things like offering other people water if they get up during the meal to get some).

This book - it takes into account that you are the natural authority on your child, and at the same time - it takes away the guesswork when you don't feel so very authoritative.

I highly, highly recommend.

For those of you who think it is easy to write a parenting book ...think again. It is a real art to be able to strike just the right tone to reach tired and overwhelmed parents. Deborah Gilboa does this well with her direct and concise writing while her caring, concern and experience shines through.

Smart kids will try many things to get the attention, affection and love that they need to thrive in this world, so it is sad to see a loving family spiral out of control when a toddler, child or pre-teen is going through a rough patch. Dr. G highlights some common developmental battles and behavior problems and doles out many creative methods to prevent a real trainwreck for families. Her ideas empower parents to be the leaders in a style that emparts respect with equal doses emotional control and thoughtful preparation.

While many parenting books are written by physicians or mental health professionals, most cannot avoid the common pitfall of using large words and complicated sentences to relay straightforward messages. This works poorly with many exhausted parents and is counterproductive for kids. Dr. G keeps her suggests short and simple; perfect for this age group.

I also find this book to be nicely balanced. Equal attention is given to action and feelings, caregiving to discipline, competition versus cooperation, while all the time respecting the special qualities of each child. It also sets a wonderful foundation for the next phase; the ever-colorful teenage years.

It is refreshing to see a careprovider emphasizing strenths and solutions, rather than problems and deficiencies.

I highly recommend this sweet book and feel it can be a first step in heading off many typical parenting challenges.

If you are tired of screaming and nagging, begging and pleading, and tantrums (both by the kids and occasionally by you!), then you have to check out Get the Behavior You Want…Without Being the Parent You Hate.
I think what I like most about this book is actually two things: it’s geared towards kids 18 months to 12 years of age (my kids are smack in the middle of the age range) and also that the chapters are broken up so that you don’t have to read from beginning to end; you can jump around and read about the topics effecting your family now.
Issues with playdates? Check out Chapter 37. Everywhere your child goes for a playdate probably has rules different from the ones at your house. Dr. G says “…the rules in your home are not negotiable, even with guests.” And it’s good to teach your child that rule when they are elsewhere as well.
My 5 year old daughter loves to get dressed up, but hates to dress herself. She still wants me to do it for her. So I promptly flipped to Chapter 20: Teach Kids To Get Themselves Dressed.
There are even chapters about YOU…the parent. Chapter 16 is all about Your Bedroom as Your Sanctuary. It is okay to have off-limit areas for the kids. I’d love to make my bedroom off-limits unless invited, and we just started working on this one.
And because the topics are broken down based on your child’s age (ex: Toddler, Preschooler), this book will grow with you as your children grow.
Dr. G is funny, upfront, doesn’t beat around the bush, and offers advice and tips that you can start using today. Get the Behavior You Want…Without Being the Parent You Hate is a parenting book everybody should have on their shelves; it’s more like a parenting how-to manual!

“Find Resilience Opportunities” was one of the first chapters I read in Get the Behavior You Want… Without Being the Parent You Hate! by Deborah Gilboa, MD. I know it’s one I’ll read again and again as I force myself to put aside my desperate desire to soothe their hurt feelings in order to teach them to solve their problems themselves. After reading Dr. Gilboa’s chapter on the importance of resilience — and how we can help our kids develop it — I know that I can be a sounding board and a comforting hug without swooping in to solve their emotional hurts.

Get the Behavior You Want… Without Being the Parent You Hate! is a parenting book by one of the most practical and loving doctors — and mothers — I know. You may have seen her online or on television as Ask Doc G, and her advice always makes me feel better. Her book is an extension of her media presence — check out her YouTube series of advice — and it’s the type of parenting book you’ll reference for years.

One of the greatest elements of the book is the straightforward, no-nonsense way she delivers her message. She offers reasons for her advice, and all of it centers around parenting in a way that will raise healthy, independent adults, which is something I think can be lost in the grind of daily parenting. Many of her chapters offer concrete examples and advice broken down by age group. It gives tired parents a quick frame of reference and is a great reminder that we can be mindful of parenting the children we have today, in order to build a foundation for the children we’ll be parenting in the future.

Disclosure: I was provided with a copy of the book for consideration for review. All opinions are my own.
