It's amazing how your sweet little kid can quickly become aggressive and manipulative and cause you to start fighting on their level. This book gave me some great tactics to diffuse these situations without getting over emotional and not walk away feeling like I've been taken advantage of.
I go back a re-read parts all the time. It's like Ferberizing your teen!

As a single parent some of it doesn't apply.
It is a bit 'American' and can be repetitive but it's definitely helpful and worth a read.
