Better than most of this drivel I have been reading about parenting. Not quite as fun as 3 martini play date.

don't waste your time. The idea is solid the writing is not.

Theory vs. practice. Lots of good concepts, but you need to remember the training is for the parent and you can't crate train a child. Simple and realistic.

Consistancy! It's a great reminder. Too bad parenting isn't as easy as it sounds.
