Another BBB Book for Your Bedside Table,
This review is from: You're Not the Boss of Me: Brat-proofing Your Four- to Twelve-Year-Old Child (Paperback)
As far as I'm concerned, you can take all the other parenting books and toss them out the window. "You're Not the Boss of Me" and Betsy's first book, "Just Tell Me What to Say" are all you need.
These books are so easy to navigate, so insightful, so right to the point and most of all, practical. Betsy really gets every age and truly understands how to help parents through some of the most challenging situations, giving suggestions and incredibly helpful and effective "Tips and Scripts." Personally, I have used them countless times with my daughter and in my case, they have been so useful. She has a gift of empowering parents and can help you feel like you can tackle the really big stuff without feeling overwhelmed or intimidated.
"You're Not the Boss of Me" is such a helpful resource to have handy in so many situations that may arise with your kids, from helping to build empathy to instilling honesty, respect, gratitude and self-reliance, just to name a few. At the end of the day, Betsy helps bring you back down to Earth, for lack of a better description. I have reached for both of her books on countless occasions and she has helped give me the words and tools to explain things/set boundaries and limits that are not only reasonable, but incredibly effective for my child.
Can't wait for the next book!!
