2.0 out of 5 stars Haven't gotten to the "good parts" yet..., May 28, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Setting Limits: How to Raise Responsible, Independent Children by Providing Clear Boundaries (Revised and Expanded Second Edition) (Paperback)
I bought this book for the same reasons everyone else has, I have a challenging child, plus the fact that it got such good reviews. I'm having a hard time getting through it, though. Just when I find an example that I can relate to, and can't wait to read the part where I learn what I should do next, the author abruptly stops BEFORE telling you how to react to the situation and moves on to a totally different case!! What's THAT all about???!!! What do I do?? What did you tell your client to do??? How did it work?? I have so many questions that still have not been answered. It's extremely frustrating. Honestly, I don't want to pick up the book anymore. How far do you have to read to get the answers? If I find them, I'll write more....

We have implemented this ideas in this book and have seen solid, permanent results. It sounds like you are over-thinking...maybe out of insecurity and fear of the unknown.

The first few chapters are like that...he talks through some examples before he gets to the methods. After those first few chapters it's all about practical methods for you to try, and because he illustrates them with examples it reads fast.
