Our customer reviews
This book is fantastic! Every six months or so, as new issues arise, I pick it up again and re-read parts. I find it fits really well with my views on managing child behaviour. We're not a smacking, time-out family. This book helps you to parent effectively without punishing your child.show moreby Nicole Wooller
