Dr. Waugh's book is the answer! I can tell you that what he says is practically common sense, but it is the useful 15-step model for families,parents and teachers to follow that makes it a necessity in my life. I am so happy to see that there really is a way to stop the anger and the tiresome yelling in my household once and for all. Tired of Yelling is precisely what this country is asking for: a way to raise our children to effectively manage their anger and frustration. Maybe then we could see a safer school environment and community for everyone. And I'll tell you -- you will be surprised as all that you will learn, too.

It's about time somebody wrote a book on helping parents understand that yelling does more harm than good. The author teaches the parent communication skills, and that's how the child will respond positively to the initiations from the parent. A peaceful environment is so much better than the hostile power play of yelling. This is a great book every parent should read. Another book that I highly recommend as it teaches parents that often frustrating situations evolve because of a lack of love, self-esteem and an identity crisis in the child and the parent, is Dietmar Scherf's "I Love Me: Avoiding and Overcoming Depression" which is also available at Amazon.

I bought this book thinking my son and daughter would find it helpful in parenting their very young families. Their rave reviews prompted me to sit down and read it from cover to cover in my own empty nest. Conflict resolution is a skill we all need at home and in the workplace. I found the authors' commonsense approach really works! So old dogs can learn new tricks -- No Biggy Piggy!

Format: Hardcover
In concise and elegant terms the authors reveal a well developed method, evolved over their years of professional experience, to help us nurture and work more effectively with our children. The text focuses primarily on teaching parents to teach childeren to resolve conflicts in a healthy and emotionally honest way. The later chapters devoted to adults are just as useful as those dedicated to your particular child's age group, and are not to be missed. This deeply insightful work will prove a great relief to all parents who are 'Tired of Yelling." I cannot recommend it strongly enough.
