I bought this book because I had read other positive reviews and I wasn't disappointed. The concepts in the book are very well laid out and easy to understand. I liked that the author gives step by step instuctions along the way and pulls it together well at the end. I have always felt that there had to be an alternative to the way I was parenting, because I knew so many of the things I was doing only worked in the short term. I am looking forward to putting these ideas into practice for a long time.
