The book had interesting tips on how to handle very strong-willed children. I got a few take-aways from the book but I see it as geared more towards older children although some of the advice seemed a bit far fetched when talking to children. I truly hope our little ones don't turn out to be as strong-willed as the book implies or we will have our hands full.

Kind of a pick up and read when you need it type book but also I just didn't find that it helped me as much as I hoped. It was a lot of things I already knew.
