For me, the most profound was that kids between 7 and 12 can't understand adult logic, even if you use simple words in their vocabulary. The next trick I tried for one of the kid's birthdays - I saved money, bought fewer gifts, and got THE gift that was really wanted, not just a fad gift. The third trick will start this weekend - getting the kids to eat vegetables!
Almost like having a manual for raising kids! Hospitals should provide this books as part of the New Parents gift bag.
The book is well-written, easy to read and holds the attention of the reader to the end. As I read the book I was taken back to the time when my children were little (especially in the chapter "Eat Your Veggies"). How many times did I struggle trying to make my kids eat those veggies, and how many times have I watched my kid/parents do the same thing? Well, Dr. Buff
settled that argument - just hide the veggies inside something the kids do like.
Thanks Dr. Buff. Your other books have been great and we'll be looking forward to your next release.
