I'm REALLY enjoying this book! I think the tips are really practical and it seems like they might actually work. The idea is that you'll never have to punish or make threats if you use this method of disengaging when kids throw tantrums or misbehave. The only thing is, I have an 11 month old so I won't know if it works until later. I'm curious if anyone has tried these techniques with older kids and what kind of results you've recieved. Thanks!
