From the Back Cover

Does Your Child Have Attitude?
  • Does your kid never take no for an answer and demand things go his way?
  • Do her theatrics leave you drained at the end of the day?
  • Are you resorting to bribes and threats to get your kid to do chores?

  • Do you feel you’re running a hotel instead of a home?
  • Are you starting to feel like your child’s personal ATM machine?

You don't want to take their parents' place, of course, but sometimes kids think they can use a bad attitude with you because you're not their parent.

This book is absolutely amazing, really puts parents back in control and helps stop the downward spiral of disrespect.

I've read all of Michele Borba's books. To me, she stands for the kind of parent I want to be: you can't just sit back and expect everything to go well. You have to get engaged and if there's a problem you have to deal with it. I love my kid -- he's great-- but he's been home lately with a back talking attitude. I couldn't believe his flippant tone and I didn't know how to deal with it. And then I picked up Borba's new book. The great part is that I was able to go to contents, find the attitude, and immediately turn to the section and get point by point steps to do to turn it around. It's been only three days, but I'm already seeing a big change in my child. I've read alot of other parent books. Most are so filled with theory and vague generalities. The great thing about Michele Borba's books is that they are very specific and action oriented and give you real live activities you can do. Try it and you'll see.

I'm a real fan of Michele Borba's books so I must admit I've been waiting for Don't Give Me That Attitude! This one is one of her best. I'm a counselor and deal with kids with "attitudes" (though most parents would call them behavior problems) -- manipulative, defiant, cheating, arrogant, you name it. The problem is there really wasn't much out there in the way of specifics to help parents. But these makeovers for bad attitudes are realistic and specific. There are so many strategies and ideas .. checklists.. resources.. and stepby step guidelines. The only thing I'd caution a parent about is not to think you have to do it all. Just turn to the attitude you think needs tuning up -- and dig in. The book is a goldmine!~

Finally, a book that gives real solutions to common and embarrassing behaviors I see in so many kids today! As a teacher, I highly recommend this book to all parents who want to really improve their child's behavior. Dr. Borba's book is easy to follow and filled with practical, simple solutions that really do work! I hope that parents will make this the next book to read on every nightstand in America.

Format: Paperback
I don't have kids, so I admit, it might seem a little strange that I would be interested in a book dealing with kids' bad attitudes. But I saw this at the library, and picked it up out of curiousity. Believe it or not, I found some good solutions for dealing with people in general with bad attitudes - like coworkers. People in offices often ACT like children. The chapter on bossy, domineering kids could be applied to coworkers like that -and I've had plenty of them. There always seems to be a "bossy boots" in an office who appoints himself or herself as the "leader" of a project, without any real authority to do so - like an actual supervisor has. That chapter has good ideas for that situation.

And this is good for dealing with other peoples' kids with bad attitudes - like when your friends' kids decide to act up. You don't want to take their parents' place, of course, but sometimes kids think they can use a bad attitude with you because you're not their parent. I don't let that happen anyway. But this book gives me even better ideas that I already had for dealing with this.

So, this is good for more than it might seem at first. Interesting book.
