I recommend this to all of my friends and they have loved it too. They are amazed at how much easier life is after using these techniques. My friend told me that when she started implementing this advice her daughter started saying to her, "You really are being such a nice mommy lately!."
My only critisms are: The problem I'm having is that some of the reactions of the kids in the stories and examples they give are no where near my kids' reactions. You are supposed to get your child to understand that they'll need to take responsibility for their actions in one part by having them pay for things (i.e. with their toys or chores). But my kid is refusing and could care less that he doesn't get to do "x" by paying for a sitter with his toys. I wish there was examples of more difficult kids in the book. You're also not supposed to care about disrespect (they advise you to ignore it entirely). That's a tough one.
Overall, though, I did enoy the book and it does have great examples of keeping calm as a parent (not letting the kids see you break a sweat) and being consistent without spanking or being overbearing. It's a great calm style of parenting.
It seems like many of the negative reviews of this book say that it's not as good as the original, but I haven't read that one yet. Also, I am a big fan of attachment parenting, especially for babies. So everything I do is within that context. There were a couple things in the book that seemed a little too harsh, but I figure I'm not going to agree with any parenting book 100%. (You have to "check" any parenting advice against your own instincts!) Overall, I felt that this book had enough positive tips that I definitely recommend it.
So far it has not been "magic." Actually it is taking a lot of persistance and creativity on my part! Not a bad thing, but the title is perhaps a bit misleading. :)
This book has some interesting concepts of how to deal with your little ones when they get out of hand. It mainly consists of giving your child as many choices as possible so that they have that sense of power/control. I have yet to try this on my daughter as she is a bit too young but am earger to give it a try when she gets a bit older. I will be keeping this book to reference back to in the future and recommend it as a quick read for those who are interested.
