Author: Elizabeth Pantley
Published: 1998
EP Review: Gotta problem with your EP kid and don't have time to read through tons of theory and analysis to address it properly? Pick up this excellent guide (ignore the smug title!), flip through everyday parenting problems until you find yours, and read...
Each problem (arranged in alphabetical order!) is broken into sections called "Situation" (i.e., "My son is hitting other children," "My daughter has no friends"...) "Think About It" (addressing the why's and putting the situation in perspective) and "Solutions" (a list of suggested tried-and-true solutions to address the issue at hand). Wonderful, sensible, straightforward advice. Very highly recommended!!
From the Author: "Perfect parenting is parenting with a plan. It is based on action, rather than reaction. Knowledge, rather than chance. Thoughtfulness, rather than anger. Common sense, rather than nonsense."
