Love this book
I am not much as a reader, but going through some though times with my older son. One day we went to the library for him and out of nowhere this book was just there and it seemed like God have heard my prayers. I believe that things happen for a reason I picked this book up and I can say that it was meant for me to read.

Wow, I bought my first copy in the summer of 2009 and I have bought 5 copies since, and I have yet to finish the book because I have been giving out copies to friends and family. I always carry the books I read arround with me and I have praised the book so much that my brother ( has 4 kids under the age of 8yrs.old ) in Toronto called me this week to tell me that wow it works and that he has referred it to 3 of his friends. Dr. K. Leman, your book is simple and make sence. I hope to find other books from you that will help me with our Brady Bunch family and inlaws ( very close to us -on the farm ). Thank you for you help ! JeannetteJeannette Mongeon (Apr 20 2010, 19:45 PM)

To Dr. Leman, thank you for the well-written book you wrote. I finished reading it during the holidays. It is so inspirational and enlightening to me. The strategies you recommended are so practical and effective. I applied some of them on my grandchildren and the strategies worked well. I recommended the book to my daughter to read, and her ways of disciplining her small children had dramatically She also wants to purchase the book for her friends as gifts. We all need to learn how to parenting the children the way you suggested because they are truly effective. susan su-chen harris (Dec 30 2009, 11:11 AM)

This book is very good and full of practical advice. It was a quick and easy read, which is helpful for busy parents. I did have some concerns about some advice on specific issues at the back of the book. I think we need to be careful not to purposefully shame our children or center them out in a negative way. As Dr. Leman says, relationship is our #1 priority. We need to build them up, not tear them down.Anonymous (Dec 20 2009, 16:18 PM)
Enough is Enough
Ibought this book one day when I just could not stand to be in my own home. I read the book first and started working on myself first. Respond, not react was my hardest thing to overcome. Then I started trying the - no B before A. It worked. My husband noticed a huge difference in me and his son in the first week. I showed him the book, which he read, and then we started the following Monday. For two weeks it was touch and go. We stood firm on "the perks of the family" and "is this a home or hotel?". At the end of three weeks he refused everything schoolwork, chores, church and even personal hygene. He turned 18 and four days later, declared our rules unfair, bogus and making his life miserable. He said he was not happy living like he was in prison, so. He was moving out and there was nothing we could do to stop him. He moved in with his maternal grandmother (his mom passed away when he was 14). This may sould like a tragedy for our family, but it is not. We had done everything we knew to do and your book helped us realize we were not far off from what we should be doing. Sometimes you will have a child that will not make right choices in life and they will have to learn the hard way. All I know is my husband has never had peace in our home and now we do. It was always from one crisis to another 24/7/365. It was literally killing us phyically and emotionally. Our marriage was already to the breaking point because of a young man refused responsibility and accountibility for his life. He actually seems to be happier with his grandmother. So for now we finally have peace and can breath. I really learned a lot in this book and I appreciate your time in sharing with us a way to help keep our focus on the big picture. Also, that the feelings and problems we were having were not just ours alone. There are other parents out there going through the same things. As you said the kids unite so should the parents. Thank you!!Danny/Katrina Dodson, Fairburn, Ga (Sep 25 2009, 21:18 PM)
