Format: Paperback
This fine book is directed toward financially privileged parents. I believe that it is also an excellent source for all parents in bringing up responsible kids with a good work ethic and other positive character traits. There are five universally excellent rules for parent responsibility, such as saying no to your child and meaning it. These rules are thoughtfully selected and rules that all parents would find validating and would give them confidence to stick to their "no's"

I highly recommend this good sense book to all parents who don't want their kids to grow up to become difficult people and difficult older parents in their old age.

"Bratproofing" is an unusually clear and lucid book, both about parenting as well as about the basics of estate and trust law. Since both my parents died this year, and I found myself as power-of-attorney and trust adviser, I eagerly read the second half of the book. It was the clearest, most concise treatment of estate and trust concepts that I'd seen. It made me realize what a good job my parents did, on both the parenting and estate planning sides of life. It also gave me some helpful insights as to why the trust department of the bank did some of the weird, and slow, things it did.

Although the Solomons directed this book to affluent parents, I consider it a must-read for all parents. I know scores of middle-class parents who indulge their children's every desire. Healthy child-rearing requires setting boundaries, including limits on the acquisition of material goods. The Solomons reinforce this principle and demonstrate how to implement it. Much common sense is contained in this book. I highly recommend it.

This book is an important reminder of the critical lessons we should be passing along. Full of practical tips and insights in both parts (rules and character traits in part 1; wealth transfer basics in part 2). I'm getting a copy for every parent I know!

Some sensible advice, but largely geared to the wealthy, not the average family.
