This changed our lives! I only gave it 4 stars, because right now, we are on the 3rd week. I don't agree with what the third week is, but the 4th and 5th week may be OK. You know your child. Our 3 year old was getting into trouble every day! I hated coming home, disciplining her and having it happen all over again. She's our second child. Our first child a a saint for the most part. She just needed different parenting styles.
I also amended this. Like I said, no child is "cookie cutter." With the first two weeks, I followed it and added "choices" with her. We spelled out each time she made a good choice and if she was not making a good choice, we explained, "bad things happen with bad choices and I will take your Barbie away." It was like a switch. After making some better choices, we gave her the Barbie back.
Ask me questions if you want. This book has saved me from my breaking point.
