This book was so funny! I'm a first time mother and I am so glad that there is a no nonsense it's-ok-to-let-your-kids-eat-dirt book. This is a book you don't want to read if you want to raise a "mamby pamby" cotton wool kid. Very eye opening and whats worse I see the parent s Nigel Latta criticises everyday

great information with out making you feel guilty
This is a bit of a weird book.

It is written by a New Zealand clinical psychologist and parent of two boys and is about parenting 0-10 year olds. I was very surprised to discover near the end of the book that he says he has done a lot of work with abusers and abused children (on the basis of which he says never let any teenage boy babysit your children, which I thought was interesting)

It is sort of funny in parts and sort of says some good stuff in others. But it is a weird book.

Firstly (and it...more

The only part of this book which was interesting and helpful and deserve a star is the part about children safety! The rest of the book is fiction with made up examples which have nothing to do with real world. If his patients (parents) are lazy, careless, addicted to TV and unhealthy food - he can't fix the problem by just telling "stop watching TV and keep your house clean etc." grown ups don't change that easy.
Also all children are different and need different approach, Nigel Latta is so arr...more
Hooray! Excellent, funny and, oh so, sensible. I could have written it myself, agreed with everything he said. Bought it for my son and daughter-in-law (mostly to help my granddaughter), God I hope they read it, he might finally realise what an excellent and sensible mother he has and now, quite obviously, what an excellent and sensible grandmother I will be!
This book was lent to me because of the chapter called "Jimmy Crapperpants and the Bucket of Consequences". It's gold! Practical and fun to read with lots of specific techniques, but I'm still waiting for the book that tells me how to get my child to sleep through the night. Ignore her? Hah!
Throw away every other parenting book!
I have read many for my work & this is in a different league. Very easy to read & laugh out loud funny. Pragmatic advice that is straightforward to implement & adhere to.
I have recommended it to many friends & they too have loved it.

This book is funny and practical and just makes sense. Yes, some of his advice may seem obvious, yet many of us miss it from time to time and need to be told again. I've now moved onto 'Mothers raising sons' for some more inspiration.

Brilliant, funny & very educational. I have a 19th month old toddler & how right he is with so many of his observations. Laugh out loud funny! He comes across in writing just as he does on stage in his tv series (DVD's).
Loved this book - great down to earth parenting tips written in an entertaining way.
Nice no bull advice, can't wait for the tv show
thanks for that veli!
