This book is great for parents whose children seem to be constantly our-of-control. It gives all parents options which offer better solutions than the "I yell , and they ignore me" way of unsuccessfully dealing with child/adult problems. Now, when noise has frequently replaced sound decisions, it is a welcome relief for any and all who deal with kids of any age.
