I've been reading this book for almost 3 years now. I got it as soon as Sophia was born. I use it more as a reference book. What I like most about this book is that it's very to the point! Most of the ideas and suggestions are commom sense, but you seem to forget teh obvious for me it's a great reference book.

الكتاب جداً رائع واضح مفصل دون تعقيد واقعي
حقاً الخبرة لها دورها، ساعدت الكاتبة في كتابة هذا الكتاب كما لو كانت اتبعت النظريات التي تعلمناها بحذافيرها
قدمت بعض المشاكل الشائعة عند الأطفال، وكيفية التعامل معها بطريقة تربوية متدرجة
اهتمامها بجميع الجوانب جسمية عقلية نفسية ; أعطى للكتاب طابع مميز عن غيره
يجب اقتناؤه
شكراً لك أ لينه لاقتراحه علي

eh. 2.5 stars?
maybe this is for big fans of the show ?(i've only seen bits of it a few times)
i confess i was looking for quick-fix ideas for the terrible-toddler phase...but this was more of a super basic, first time parent owners manual with very little i hadn't heard elsewhere.

on the positive side, it did have good little bullet point sections which were helful (as opposed to other books directed at parents which drone on for pages and pages...)

here are a few points from one bullet-note page

This book is great to give advice on any questions you have on discipline or just how to communicate better with your children. I've had many friends ask me how I get my kids to listen, I just say "supernanny". I'm not saying that my kids listen all the time either. ;)

مهمترین موضوع این کتاب ایجاد نظم و روتین در زندگی کودک هست. که به نظر خود من هم خیلی در آرامش کودک موثر هست.

I bought this book years ago as my first child was entering the toddler phase and I needed some help. Although this book does have some good ideas on child rearing and basic parenting, it isn't super helpful dealing with more detailed problems. I can't say that I blame her, it is a general book on parenting and obviously not every minor problem that is faced by parents can be explained, but I guess I was hoping for something more. A lot of her advise seems like common sense to me, but I guess it ...more

لن يعرف قيمة هذا الكتاب الا من كان عنده أطفال، وقام بالتطبيق عليهم

المؤلفة ذكية، قامت بعرض أغلب المشاكل التي يعاني منها الأهل مع أطفالهم من مختلف الفئات العمرية، وقد قامت بعرض الحلول الذكية التي قد لا تخطر على بال أحدنا، ومع ذلك كانت الطرق التي تعرضها ناجحة بكل المقاييس

الكتاب مرجع لكل عائلة ترغب في تربية أطفالها

This is a nice light read with lots of pictures. You don't read it from cover to cover, just the occasional aphorism to contemplate as you stir the oatmeal or pick up crayons from the living room carpet.

Holy crap! - How have I NOT read this book before NOW???!!! Not only does she cite common toddler behavioral issues, but she ACTUALLY explains how to DEAL with them! This is one I'm skipping around in, and not exactly reading from "start to finish..."

I read this book cover-to-cover, but it also makes a great reference guide for busy parents. The information Frost gives is mostly decades-old childcare strategies, but inexperienced and/or struggling parents and caregivers will appreciate the short, easy-to-understand steps to manage poor sleep, eating, and behavior issues in young children under 5.

Positives: All of the techniques in this book DO work if done properly, and it's a great reminder for caregivers like me who have been working with

فكر ميكنم در مسائلي كه به طور روزمره با اونها سروكار داريم، ترجمه كلمات بسيار مهمتر از موارد ديگه، مثلا نمايشنامه يا رمان باشه! با يك مثال مشخص تر كنم.
در مبحث 'تعيين حد و حدود و خط قرمز' وقتي قراره با كودك حرف بزنيد و اين جمله "دست هاي آلودت رو به همه جا نمال" اگر مترجم كلمه كثيف رو به جاي آلوده انتخاب مي كرد، به هيچ عنوان پذيرفته نبود. دستهاي كثيفت به همه جا نمال! هرچند از نظر معنايي تفاوتي نداره اما در خوانش اول خواننده متوجه رابطه دست بچه و آلوده بيشتر ميشه تا كثيف!

I have never watched any of the Supernanny TV show but I picked this up at a secondhand book stall out of curiosity, and decided I really like it. It's short and simple and to the point, and the advice is realistic and sensible. Lots of stuff that in theory I already know, but often forget to do - like, if you want your kid to actually listen, don't just bellow at them from across the room half-heartedly but take them aside, get down on their level so you're not looming over them, make eye conta ...more

Best tevreden over dit opvoedboek, ook al had ik zelf voordien een similaire techniek (zoals met time-outs). Jo Frost bied een inzicht in de gang van zaken in de kinderkoppies waar je nog niet bij stilstond, wat het aanpassen van bepaalde opvoedzaken die verkeerd gingen makkelijker maakt. Ondanks het begrip dat Jo kweekt, vond ik de strikte manier van toespreken naar de lezende ouder best storend. Ik ben nog steeds rebel nr. 1 in huis, en niemand vertelt mij hoe ik iets MOET doen. Afijn, zoals b ...more

I bought Supernanny: How to get the best from your children by Jo Frost when I was pregnant with my first child. I wanted something general as I didn't know what help I might need disciplining my children & I did indeed get something general, which wasn't quite what I wanted when I came to read it, at the dawn of toddlerhood.

The book covers all ages & stages, which is useful as an overview & useful to understand what you can & cannot expect of a child at different ages. However,
This book is my favorite, because it explains how to deal with children in a modern way. Also, the book is talking about more things that are related to children like the ten rules for parents. The first section of the book shows the stages and ages and how babies think about the world around them. In the next section it shows the routines and rules and how they will affect the children’s behavior in the future. Also, it points out how to put borders dealing with children, so that will reflect t ...more

Did you ever get the chance to watch the TV show Supernanny when Jo Frost, the insightful British nanny was hosting it? There was this certain air about her, when she'd walk into a parent's house of unruly kids and get these kids to shape up rather quickly... With just one look, the kids would settle in. If you have unruly kids and the cast hasn't been called in yet or your situation was declined prior to Jo arriving, or even if you forgot some of the information in a particular technique, give ...more

I have never watched the show "Supernanny," but after reading this book I am curious about it.

After just a few days of following techniques used in this book, I find my kids are already behaving loads better. I know I am looking at an long uphill road, but I've learned to enjoy the small victories. For that reason I chose to implement the bedtime rules first so that I have extra "me-time" at the end of the day which I has improved my outlook all around.

This book covers all sorts of issues like,

I watch her show pretty regularly, so when I saw the book at a garage sale, I picked it up. Her common-sense approach to the everyday problems and issues that arise with kids seems right on target. Firmness and consistency are emphasized. There are some good ideas and suggestions in this book, and it's laid out neatly. But its helpfulness ranks just above that of a collection of articles (with plenty of pictures, blurbs & bullet points) from any mainstream parenting magazine. I want more mea ...more
I really love watching Supernanny, so I had big expectations for this book. But, it takes on too much. It is a good introduction the subject, but I think she needs a book for each subtopic or each age range. A perfect example is that there are two pages on breastfeeding. There are also lots of filler pages of Jo with kids or kids playing. There are clear pluses, though. Its very organized, so if you were having a particular problem, you could easily pick it up and find a solution. Its not really ...more

My kids and I like watching "Supernanny" and "Nanny 911." If nothing else, these shows help me to appreciate how good I really do have it. I was intrigued by Jo Frost's book which outlines her techniques - maybe there would be something in there I could use.

Essentially, the book is geared toward younger children, say up to around the age of six. I only have one that still falls into that bracket, but it was still good to have the reminder of how to lay a good foundation for behavior. She didn't

Nice Book, easy and quick to read. Some interesting tips, so I like it, but nothing that blow your mind. I like the fact that the structure is really clear and that the content is well organized. Everything is built around 10 basic rules;
1- Praise and rewards; 2- Consistency;3- Routine;4- Boundaries; 5- Discipline;6 - Warnings (telling what coming next or warnings for bad behaviour; 7- Explanations; 8- Restraint (KEEP COOL); 9- Responsability; 10- Relaxation (quality time)

Someday, I am going to be a parent. I checked out this book from the library because I love the show "Super Nanny" on TV. That nanny works wonders with bratty children and their parents who don't know how to parent them correctly.

There were some very good tips in the book, that I would never even stop to think of.

For example, she says never to reward your children with treats, as it teaches them to have unhealthy attitudes about food later in life. She says verbal praise and a big hug does the j
I picked this up hoping for some kind of miracle advice to address tantrums and potty training issues. It's a good book of common sense parenting tips, but I didn't find anything that I hadn't already seen in other parenting books or on parenting sites, or learned from friends. One good reminder from the first part of the book: just because a child can talk doesn't mean s/he is capable of logic and reason. It's good to remember that my daughter is being irrational because she's two, not because ...more

I've read this book before, but I wanted to brush up on some things that we've let slide around here. While the book is really geared mostly for kids five and under, there is plenty to benefit my family -- my six kids are ages 8-17. From today's quick read through, the main things I need to remember are consistency and firmness with plenty of love, praise and fun mixed in. No brainers, really, but this book is written with an attitude of encouragement, never hopelessness, and I'm ready for a fre ...more
