"Irreverently useful tips on raising a happy family"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you are tired of being told what to do by people who always seem to know better than you, this is the book to read.

It has heaps of commonsense advice that makes you think about your parenting style and often highlights what you already knew but got lost in the quagmire of information out there!

It's informative and the advice is easily understood and can be implemented in real life with REAL kids.

Best of all – it is written in a chatty conversational style which further breaks any mental block you may have to reading more advice.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading it and using it!

"So much for the terrible 2's"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

My wee man is almost 2 now, and his behaviour at times is enough to want to make me crawl in a hole and hide. I live with my grandparents who dote on him constantly, and I have been at a loss at what to do to get him to behave. Their inconsistent and refused to participate with tools such as the naughty chair. I had been tearing my hair out, in dispair! That was until I bought this very book. Within a short 24 hour period of reading it and using the techniques, my little monster had reverted back into a little boy. It has been so successful my grandparents have tried it out. This is a must read book!! Now my only hair loss is due to uni due dates for assessment. it's time to enjoy your kids and your life, and if nothing else has worked don't worry, this will.

5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Cannot praise this book enough!! A fantastic self help guide for parents who need a little direction and understading how their teenagers brain is actually working. It has saved my daughters life, mine & my marriage! Easy reading non preaching take what you want from it!


Includes full text of previously published title Before Your Kids Drive You Crazy, Read This plus approximately 1/3 new content!

Do your kids sometimes make you feel your head is going to explode? Ever yelled at them until you were hoarse? Do you have days when you feel like making a run for the airport?

For harassed parents struggling to understand why they end up screaming at their kids and tearing their hair out trying to make them understand that bad behaviour has inevitable consequences, this is the perfect book to help your family make it through the crucial first decade or so and still enjoy each other's company.

Practical commonsense answers and real life examples, logical and realistic strategies, and innovative behaviour modification tools that work in the real world - all from a parent and family therapist who's seen almost everything there is to see and offers some hard-won battlefield wisdom.
Written in down-to-earth language, this book needs to be handed out at birth, an essential guide for the struggling parent who knows family life can and should be better.
