Promoting children's self-esteem is Joslin's operative principle, and while that's certainly a sought-after goal in most modern child-rearing manuals, Joslin's A-to-Z plan for achieving it sets her book apart. Drawing on 20 years worth of teaching parenting classes and listening to parents' problems, Joslin sets down general guidelines and specific strategies for dealing with 140 different situations. The entries, which are divided into three parts (the first defines a particular behavior; the second explains how to deal with it; the third suggests how to prevent it), run the gamut from adoption to yelling and include dialogue, which is set in italics, that can be used practically verbatim when parents find themselves at a loss for words. Joslin even suggests some helpful books to use when a situation needs more clarification. With the alphabetical format making it especially easy to use, this will be a helpful down-to-earth book for diffusing those all-too-frequent parent-child power struggles and perhaps stopping a few before they start.
