Review:

With the multitude of parenting books on the market, could there really be one more that offers something new and refreshing? Yes, there could; Who's the Boss is really a gem. Whether you are one of those parents who has trouble enforcing rules or are a parent who is tired of yelling all of the time, Who's the Boss has thoughtful, and intelligent answers about the whys and hows of appropriate and helpful discplinary tactics. Fortunately, Glaser and Lavin, not only know all about the stages of childhood development, they also really understand parents and the cultural pressures that we all face, especially to be nurturing and perfect. In fact, the true brillance of the book may be their insight into our society's contemporary ambivalence about setting limits with kids. Or, maybe their best point is that parent-child conflict is a normal, healthy and necessary component of raising children into high-functioning adults. Glaser and Lavin apply their approach to the classic childhood challenges--sleep, food, potty, siblings, and daycare. which may tempt you to read only about one relevant problem at a time. Glaser and Lavin's good advice, however, will suck you in to reading the rest. --Blue Mama (Maryland, Amazon Reviews)

I am a mother of a three and a half year old, with a second boy on the way. Through friends, family, and my own curiosity I have managed to acquire a rather ridiculously large collection of parenting books. Many I never really needed to crack open, but this one, I actually wish I had gotten sooner. Glaser and Lavin's philosophy is grounded in love and respect for the child. They recognize that conflict between parents and children is an inherent part of raising a child and they help the parent navigate these challenges by listening to the child and talking to the child with respect while clearly teaching limits and helping the child gain confidence and independence within acceptable boundaries. Their advice is very practical. They offer specific, helpful, and realistic ways of dealing with the major stumbling blocks that have certainly caused me to lock horns with my son. I am grateful to have read the chapter on sibling rivalry before my second one arrived! Their writing is both intelligent and accessible. The book is not too long and overly repetitive as I have found too many parenting books to be. I basically devoured the whole thing in one late-night reading binge and was left with a sense of 'Ah. Now *that* was helpful.' --L Pelllegrino (New Hampshire, Amazon Reviews

Most books on parenting barely scratch the surface, but Who's the Boss delivers solutions that address the core of the challenge of being a modern, caring parent. --Marjorie Greenfield, MD, author of Dr. Spock's Guide to Pregnanc
