Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marian | 2/13/2014

    " Lots of great tips. I've started to implement and my daughter thinks it really works (less yelling from me), I think it really works (more cooperation and better attitude from her)! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathy | 2/6/2014

    " GREAT parenting book!!! I highly recommend it for all parents. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 1/31/2014

    " As the title suggests, this book had some good tips and pointers for how to "set limits" with my "strong willed child." This will hopefully help us get out of the terrible two's, which we have found can actually last from 18 months to age 3. Now I can read something more fun... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/29/2014

    " I thought this book offered some great ideas to help stop the "family dance" pitfall. Even if you don't have a strong-willed child, this book offers great suggestions on how to deal with kids that like to test rules (and don't they all?) and gain respect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valeri | 1/26/2014

    " Insightful, clear and easy to read. A lot of great parenting techniques which I've already tried and found to be successful. On a side not, I found a handful of grammatical errors throughout this book - mostly in Chapters 8 & 9 (if I remember right). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tatiana | 1/14/2014

    " Usefull - but not last word on the subject, I guess. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela Craig | 1/13/2014

    " Excellent resource. For those of you who have a child or children who don't seem to think that the family rules apply to them, some really good advice in here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chrystal | 1/8/2014

    " A lot of common-sense-stuff but I always appreciate things being simplified when it comes to parenting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 1/4/2014

    " Cam & I read this on our way home from NE. Some great ideas to help raise a "stubborn" child. I think CAm & I already do a lot of them & it's so important in those first few years to establish the rules. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 12/28/2013

    " This book really puts things in every-day terms that are easy to understand an apply. I have been experimenting on my own 4 strong-willed children (yes, they all fit this category) and the things he suggests really do make a difference. Very practical advice that you can start using immediately. "

    " great book!! It's helped me to disipline my 4 year old in a way he understands. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Soni | 12/7/2013

    " I am learning that a strong willed child will always test boundaries and the most effective way to manage their behavior is to be consistent, be effective with immediate punishment for negative behavior (take toy away, time out, etc.) and don't leave room for negotiation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlotte | 12/4/2013

    " Helpful in letting my understand my son better and had some nice ideas & tips to help. "

    " I don't particularly like the writing style, but I'm keen to start applying these principles to my iron-willed little fella. Already there has been some improvement. Now to convince the hubby to read it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki | 7/24/2013

    " Basically, he says use "time out". However, his list of rationals and other things not to say to children was more useful. Also, his description of natural consequences was very interesting. I am wondering how his classroom version differs. "
