I have read close to 20 childrearing books since becoming a mother but this is the one book that's spoken to me most directly about the struggles I am going through with a strong-willed school aged child. Things that were driving me crazy: talking back, inability to keep on a schedule, constant asking for more, more, more in the way of material gifts...I've had no problem nurturing my child academically, physically, emotionally and athletically...but how to instill a sense of responsibility? consideration for others? accountability? selflessness? respect for others? This was so much harder as a parent.

I had wavered between firm and soft over the years, and I hadn't been 100% consistent in my discipline and follow through. I'm paying for that now, and struggling as to how I can make up for what I had failed to do better in the early years. Noga's many vivid examples of former clients/patients as well as no-holds-bar warnings jolted me into changing my parenting attitude and methods literally overnight.

I should clarify that this is not a how-to book - more of an illustrative book to show the range of out-of-control behaviors and attitudes among kids and teens (and how parents perpetrate and nurture them) and what could happen if parents don't step in soon - but I think the answers are within us already. What the book does is give a huge jolt and wake up call. If you find yourself at times picking up the slack for your child, or looking the other way because you know it'll take too much effort to argue with him, this book reminds you that it is *not* ok to keep letting these incidents pile up, or before you know it your child will be controlling your household and grow into an entitled, emotionally weak and dependent adult.

Format: Paperback
In a direct, straightforward voice, Ms. Noga, makes a solid case for parenting with limits, love, and expectations. Filled with examples from her own clinical practice and sage practical advice, she effectively demonstrates that indulgent parenting often leads to the development of entitled, narcissistic children. Sadly as these narcissistic children age, they struggle with the adult tasks of creating meaningful, empathetic relationships and satisfying, fulfilling work. She recognizes, with compassion, that our current materialistic society makes limit setting difficult. However, a strong advocate for healthy children and families, Ms. Noga is nonetheless clear that parents need to rise to the challenge and teach their children responsibility, gratitude, and respect. Fortunately, for the reader she provides many practical suggestions on exactly how to do that.

Format: Paperback
Those of us who have been around long enough to remember when parents were still authority figures (albeit some were too strict)are confused by the shift in power that is all too prevalent in families currently. All too often, kids run the show. Sheri Noga's book directly confronts the notion that parental focus should be on the immediate gratification of the child in order to keep him or her happy. For those who need permission to do what is right and best for the child, they will get it in big doses here. In a direct and easily understandable style, a reality check is delivered to parents willing to change their own way of parenting. These changes involve providing a gift better than any they could buy-an understanding of the importance of empathy, respect and the patience to wait for (or even earn) what they want.

Have The Guts To Do It Right is a wonderful book for both therapists and parents. The book contains vivid observations that speak to the author's keen observational skills. There is much wisdom in this book. Many parents sincerely feel that they are helping their children by not setting limits on them and trying to be their best friends. Sheri sets them straight in a very direct and honest manner. The book validates the experiences of many therapists working with children, adolescents and young adults growing up in the 21st century, and the author writes in an interesting manner which makes this a difficult book to put down.

Format: Paperback
HAVE THE GUTS TO DO IT RIGHT is an amazing handbook for parents in today's world - a world of modern conveniences, booked-solid schedules, hurry-up attitudes, kids being raised by electronic devices, and unreasonable demands being thwarted on parents from every angle. In the pages of her book, Sheri Noga offers her best advice and doable, time-tested tactics for successful, healthy parenting of children of all ages. This book is written by a trained, experienced therapist who has spent years talking to parents and children and learning from their experiences, but more importantly, it is written from the heart of a mother. Sheri will show you how to deal with the trials and tribulations that are bound to occur while you accompany your child on their journey to adulthood, and in the end, you and your children will share a healthier, happier relationship. By applying the lessons you will learn from Ms. Noga, you can help your own children become well-adjusted, strong adults, all while equipping them with the tools they will need when they have children of your own. Whether you are a parent already or are on your way to becoming one, you can rely on Sheri's advice to put you on the right path for the sake of yourself, your kids, and the generations to come. If you truly "have the guts to do it right," this book will be the smartest investment you will ever make for your family.
