Recommends it for: Parents in need of ideas to help raise their children
I didn't fully read this book. I checked this book out as an accident at the library. It was fun to glance through the book and look at the many ideas listed. I would recommend this book to parents who may be a little stuck and need a few ideas. I gave it two stars, because I personally don't need any of those specific ideas on raising children, but I may check it out again if I feel stuck down the road.

I actually don't know when I first read this book, but I know it's one I turn to often. Gives some great FUN ideas for discipline and problem solving. The issues are categorized in the back - i.e. TV, social problems, sibling conflict, sleep, etc. Most ideas stop at ages 8 to 10. Great for little ones.
It's okay with some good ideas for non-creative people but for me parts of it seems too lacking in real help ideas. I don't know, could just be me but it didn't match up well with my parenting techniques aside from a few ideas. I like The No Cry Discipline Solution book much better...
