If you follow the advice in this book you will have polite respectful kids who can also think for themselves. I liked especially the chapter about respect. I also liked the idea of getting down on your knees to be at the toddler's level to communicate. Clear cut examples are helpful to any parent no matter the age of their children.

Format: Paperback
Richard Greenberg has written a wide-ranging real world guide to modern parenting with a specific issue as a starting point. We all want our kids to feel valued and loved but we also want (or should want) kids to understand that they're not the only people in the world. So kids' feelings should be respected, and kids should also respect the feelings of other people, whether it's their brothers and sisters or an older couple at the next table in a restaurant. Making this happen takes neither boot camp discipline or New Age permissiveness. It does require what the author calls common sense. What "common sense" parenting really means is made very clear in this book. I learned a lot from it.

Raising Children That Other People Like to Be Around is terrific. It is not a medical journal -- it is fun reading.

We've already tried some of the suggestions in the book and had some great results.

Format: Paperback
Reading this book could save your children a lot of money on therapy. Richard's book is powerful in its simplicity. Letting readers into his personal life, he recounts anecdotes from his marriage and raising of four children, along with observations about their transition into fully functioning, well-adjusted adults. The advice he has mined from his experience is simple, smart and insightful. It's almost obvious, and yet it leaves you wondering, "why don't more parents do that?"

This is a great book. I have one child and the author is a father of four. He knows a thing or two about the challenges of raising kids. He offers some really easy tips on how to be a smarter and calmer parent and to respect your children and maintain their respect for you, the rules and themselves. I want that for my family. Parenting is daunting and there are a lot of parenting how-to books out there. This one has this thing called S.M.A.R.T.: Set an example, Make the rules, Apply the rules, Respect yourself, and Teach in all things. I really liked it. The author sounds really funny and fun and I bet his house was a nice one to grow up in.

This is an insightful book for aspiring parents, current parents or any grandparents. We all have common sense, and the author taps into our own self-knowledge through anecdotes and analysis. It's a fantastic read!
