There truly are only 17 ways kids manipulate. And manipulate is not used with malicious intent, but what kids do to satisfy their wants- very simply. I sent this book to my brother and his wife after they had their first child. He felt more confident in the choices they will use to guide their child and his wife also identified some of the manipulation techniques that she noticed in either my brother or her friends and co-workers. (As in this book doesn't just work for parents to kids). She mentioned that to my parents and they read this book. They have also noticed things my brother and I have done when we were kids and how they wish this book by Dr. Swanson was available when they were raising us.
I have had the pleasure of meeting Dr. David Swanson during his book signing and found that he wrote this book not only based on 15 years as a child and family therapist, but also with his own experience as a father of three.
In short, you have only to gain in getting this book.
Finally, a book that sides with me. All this time, we have been unable to agree on how to discipline. This sets up workable ones, as my children think it's "hard labor" to all get together and fold clothes on a weekend.
