Today's kids are unionized, and they've got a game plan to drive you up the wall.
But you don't have to let them call the shots.
If you picked up this book, you did so for a reason. You'd like to see a few things--or many--change in your house. Have a New Kid by Friday is a game plan guaranteed to work. All it takes is sticking to some simple strategies--strategies any parent can carry out.
I'll be blunt. You've got a big job to do and a short window in which to do it. If you believe that you are to be in healthy authority over your child, this book is for you. If you don't, put it down right now and buy another.
After you read Have a New Kid by Friday, you'll tell yourself, "I can't wait for my kids to misbehave. I'm ready for them!" I promise.

My only wish is I wish there were subjects in this book that focus on toddlers and very young kids. The part in this book about not briefing your kids when you go out in public, well, I haven't mastered that yet. I guess that's why they still act up in public.
