The Well-Behaved Child

No, I'm not talking about our children (well, they are pretty well-behaved if I do say so myself).  I am talking about the book that I have just finished: The Well-Behaved Child: Discipline that Really Works by John Rosemond.  I have been reading his newspaper columns in the paper on Wednesdays for years now but this was the first time I have read a book...I mean, one of his books!  So what did I learn?  Well, a ton.  Here is what I am going to work on: keeping my instructions short and not justifying what I say.  And after the past few days, the section on sibling rivalry is going to be put into practice very soon....along with assigning chores (that has to happen soon too! Oh, and "the doctor" will probably show up soon too....and I can't wait.  Anyway, it is a great book.  Usually, when I get a book, I read it once (if at all) and then never look at it again-but this one is different.  It is definitely a keeper and hopefully, I will never have to read it again...but since there are four kids at this house, I have a feeling that this book will be read over and over again.  Okay, so that is my review...go out and buy this book if you have little ones...'cause I am not going to let you borrow mine!

LOL. I think that might be a great book to add to my Christmas list!
