I'm in the middle of chapter 3...   and here's my problem.  I get it while I'm reading it and I can see the answer when its spelled out, but so much of it relies on you knowing WHY something just happened...    "You have a choice. You can hit your brother to get what you want or you can say 'May I have a turn'" "You wanted your sister to move.You may not push..."   What if you don't know why?  I'm in the kitchen and the boys are in the playroom.  Everything...

spiritforever - i am sooo jealous! I would LOVE to see Barbara COloroso!!!!    I just finished chapter 1 and at the end of the chapter she talks about a 7 week program at the back of the book.... if there are any lurkers who have read the book already... do you know if you can do the 7 week program along with reading, or do you need to read it all the way through first?

So, I got the book and I just started it (like 3 pages in before I fell asleep).  I REALLY hope she follows through on her promises, because the intro sounds perfect! (how to change your behaviour so you childrens behaviour follows suit).  Hope it works... here's to a good read!!!

I find I'm a better mom when I'm reading a parenting book, and would love to have company along the way...
