I had wavered between firm and soft over the years, and I hadn't been 100% consistent in my discipline and follow through. I'm paying for that now, and struggling as to how I can make up for what I had failed to do better in the early years. Noga's many vivid examples of former clients/patients as well as no-holds-bar warnings jolted me into changing my parenting attitude and methods literally overnight.
I should clarify that this is not a how-to book - more of an illustrative book to show the range of out-of-control behaviors and attitudes among kids and teens (and how parents perpetrate and nurture them) and what could happen if parents don't step in soon - but I think the answers are within us already. What the book does is give a huge jolt and wake up call. If you find yourself at times picking up the slack for your child, or looking the other way because you know it'll take too much effort to argue with him, this book reminds you that it is *not* ok to keep letting these incidents pile up, or before you know it your child will be controlling your household and grow into an entitled, emotionally weak and dependent adult.Read more ›
However, for the 99% of us whose parents weren't perfect, this book will be quite useful.
