Bogus Reviews  Jul 29, 2006
Notice the verbage used by the first 12 of 18 reviewers. Pretty similar. And these were all written in about a 7 day period of July-August 2002. Bogus reviewers.

Read through it for yourself at your local bookstore, then decide.
My favorite parenting resource!  Apr 14, 2003
I don't usually write reviews, but this book is so great that it deserves another review (even though everyone else who has reviewed this book so far thinks it's great too)! Dr. Cathryn has such a wonderful way of writing, it almost feels like she is having a dialogue with you. I found that as I was reading, I would have a mental question, and low and behold, within the next section she would address it, just like she knew what I was thinking. Her advise is practical and realistic, and she presents it in a very non-judgemental way, which makes it very easy to read all of the different sections, even those that may not seem applicable (yet!).

I originally bought the book to address sleep issues, but have been very pleased by all of the other issues she addresses. She provides very simple instructions to follow to correct this all too common problem. And they worked!! She also explains the why's and possible consequences of not changing certain behaviors, which is enlightening and certainly motivating.

Thanks Dr. Cathryn for providing such a great resource for new parents!

This book solved my problem  Apr 7, 2003
As a young parent it is often hard to know what to do when you encounter discipline problems. After all kids don't come with a instruction manual, at least not until now. The convenient format of this book has provided the quik answers to difficult problems that I needed. This book is funny accurate and easy to read. I would reccoment this book to all new parents or even to those who have parenting experience. The parents problem solver worked for me, it taught me not only about my child but about myself.
I LOVE THIS BOOK!  Mar 23, 2003
This is a great book for parents, teachers, grandparents, babysitters, anyone who lives or works with children. Dr Cathryn gives sensible advice for anyone who wants to handle situations in a manner that benefits the child. I've used Dr Tobin's advice with my Grade Two students, and I find I am yelling less at my kids, and spending more time having fun teaching them. Thanks Dr Tobin. How about a video next?
An A-Z Amazing Book  Mar 23, 2003
As a parent of twin four-year-olds boys, I am grateful to have found a book that gives me straight answers, without making me feel guilty. Dr Tobin has given me a tool---the 3Rs---- that I can use anytime, anywhere with any kind of problem. I am going to buy this book for all my expecting friends!
