Format: Paperback
I eagerly ordered Good Kids, Bad Habits, hoping for new insights and parenting tips. The first problem was that my children are 12, 14 & 17 years old, and the book's advice targeted parents with much younger children. Unfortunaltely some of us with teens and preteens have still not figured out how best to shepard our children into the healthest possible lifestyles, given our modern culture.

I read the book anyway, and was struck with the thought that very few of the suggestions presented by the author were new or original. Many of the main stream suggestions have been in parents' magazine articles for decades. The title and cover of the book were the most creative and original part of the package.

The author is a pediatrician, yet little or no science graced the pages.

Of course I was not been able to bring myself to toss the book in the recycle bin. So I have donated the paperback to the local library. A 5 minute scan of the text at the library, should provide you with all its insights.

As a mother of 2 1/2 year old twins, I found this book to provide invaluable advice for how to ensure that we parents take steps NOW in order for our children to develop a solid, enduring set of healthy lifestyle habits. What I appreciated most about the book was the Dr. Jen's practical perspective and advice re: small, incremental changes that can be implemented in the near term to help children for the long-term. This book is a great resource for any parent, however new or experienced you are!

What a fantastic book! Useful advice given in a practical and non-judgemental way. Dr. Jen provides a fantastic road map for helping to put your child on the path of a healthy life both physically & mentally. As the Mom of a 9-year old son, I really appreciated her advice on parenting children during the 'tween years and thoughts on self-esteem.

I ordered the book to find the magic solution to my son's (age 6) bad eating habits. My other 3 kids eat anything. The book had very useful advice but no earth shattering solutions - just good common sense. I enjoyed reading the book and was glad I did, but it did not help. It did reinforce many things were were already doing as a family. It was a good check up.

This book has alot of basics to teach yourself and your child. If you are looking for something more than basics to educate yourself, this is not the book.
It has some helpful ideas.
