A little dated, but very helpful. Full of useful ideas. My favorite part of the book is the checklist at the beginning, giving guidance as to appropriate chores to assign to a child based on age. I didn't know where to start, or what things might need to be rearranged before reading this book. Plenty of charts and resources. I also especially like the appendix on teaching your children how to navigate city streets using maps, numbering systems, and compass points. This never would have occurred...more

This was written in the 80s but was sort of ahead of its time - similar ideas as Love and Logic as well as The Parenting Breakthrough, but with lots of ideas for motivating children.

Yes it's sort of cheesy, but it's reinspired me to tackle this part of parenting - giving them the life skills they need to be truly independent. You know, that thankless part of parenting.
