Product description

Outlining the six tactics kids use to get their way, this reference teaches parents to think objectively about their children's favorite ploys and emotionally manipulative strategies. Insightful analyses emphasize the importance of understanding the underlying emotional dynamics of testing and offer practical solutions, from knowing how to say "no" comfortably to when to say "yes" encouragingly. Ensuring a healthy relationship between children and parents, this humorous, down-to-earth guide enables parents to manage their own behavior and that of their children.
