If I have to tell you one more time-- : the revolutionary program that gets your kids to listen without nagging, reminding or yelling
Noelle's Take: I thought for the most part, this parenting book was spot on. The first part of the book explains the psychology behind children's' misbehavior and offers proactive strategies that help prevent undesired behaviors before they become a problem.
However, I thought the "tools" part of the book was a tad overwhelming for a rookie parent. It's hard in the moment to remember which tool might be best used in a particular parenting scenario - especially if you're covered in yogurt.
Why is it so difficult sometimes to get kids to listen? You ask your child to turn off the TV, do her homework, or get ready for school or bedtime. You know he heard you, but he ignores you. You ask again and still...no response. You've tried everything-time-outs, nagging, counting to three-and nothing seems to work.
In If I Have to Tell You One More Time..., founder of the popular online parenting course Positive Parenting Solutions Amy McCready presents a nag- and scream-free program for compassionately, yet effectively, correcting your children's bad behavior.
In this invaluable book, McCready shows parents how an understanding of the psychological theory espoused by Alfred Adler (1870-1937) can put an end to power struggles in their households. Adlerian psychology focuses on the central idea that every human being has a basic need to feel powerful-with children being no exception to the rule. And when this need isn't met in positive ways, kids will resort to negative methods, which often result in some of the most frustrating behavior they exhibit. If I Have to Tell You One More Time... provides the knowledge and tools parents need to address the deeper issues that inspire their children to misbehave.
