Some good advice

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 13-04-13

This audiobook is read by the author. She has a calm Scandanavian voice. The book is slow going however and whilst the advice contained in it is sound and practical, it does not really lend itself to the quick reference of a book. Everything is explained step by step but It got very repetitive at times, which is partly the idea, in order to learn the techniques.

I get the feeling that if you followed this to the letter your life would be calmer and happier as a parent so it does what it says on the title, but the techniques are time consuming and a lot of hard work. This will ultimately work to your advantage as the author advises, but beer pared to go in it for the long haul. The chapter on never ask twice is the best advice I have heard on the subject of getting your kids to listen to you and do it first time! It does work, which is pretty amazing. The key is consistency, as with any of these parenting techniques.
