Item description for Back in Control: How to Get Your Children to Behave by Gregory Bodenhamer...
Overview The co-founder of the "Back in Control" training program for parents, an organization which has helped more than six thousand troubled families, details the simple, three-step method for controlling behavior problems in thirty days.
Publishers Description In "just thirty days, " you can get children to behave the way you want them to. Whether their misbehavior is as minor as letting the dishes pile up and the trash overflow or as traumatic as a drug habit and stealing, "Back in Control" will enable you to set and enforce rules that your kids will obey. "Back in Control" is based on a highly successful program that has helped thousands of parents regain control over their children. Without compromising your values away or kicking the kids out of the house, it offers you the simplest, most effective method of childhood discipline to date. It presents a three-step formula that is perfect for virtually any adult wanting to control children's misbehavior. Instead of getting caught up in children's arguments and manipulations, "Back in Control" shows parents how to reestablish their rightful place as bosses of the family. Teachers are able to devote more time to teaching than to disciplining students. Probation officers and social workers working with parents, in addition to managing their caseloads more effectively, are able to permanently stop children from abusing drugs or alcohol, stealing, running away from home, and being truant. Children themselves learn that there are some rules they must obey, whether they want to or not, and they will grow up believing that they can succeed in doing what is required of them. Power belongs to those who use it. And if you don't, your children will. If your children's problem behavior is out of hand, it's time you got "Back in Control."

Already Helping! Feb 13, 2007
I bought this book last month on the recommendation of my best friend, a child psychologist. It's already helping to get the defiance and attitude of my 9 year old under control! It's helped me focus on issues, and not emotions--which then allows the issues to be the focus for her, not my or her emotions. I highly recommend this book! But be careful and don't laugh when you child flings "I"M tired of the word regardless!" at you!
You must buy this book. Feb 6, 2007
When my daughter was 8 years old, she was out of control, and our lives were under her control. I had read every book about defiant children, but I didn't see my daughter in any of those books. Until I read this little gem that is. Finally someone was talking about my kid. It changed our lives, and that was 7 years ago. She is now a delightful teenager, yes, I said delightful, and a pleasure to have around. And no it didn't take 7 years. It took just weeks to see real progress, and everyday got better. If you need help like this, you must buy this book.
Easy to impliment and works great! Jan 19, 2007
This is bar-none the best book about parenting problems. Our 12 year old daughter was becoming snotty and ugly. It wasn't bad enough to warrant Tough Love, but we were at our wits ends trying to reason with her.
After reading this book, we were able to cope with the situation quickly, and avert WWIII. I hand it out to anyone I know who is having trouble with their kids. It is THE BEST!

I first read this book 14 years ago, and this is the best parenting book I have read, and still recommend it today. It has practical help that works immediately, and is quick to read.
Good Read, Effective Advice Sep 21, 2005
I bought this book, because I have a pre-teen, who is extremely strong-willed, and I wanted to prevent having a teenager in 5 years, who is out of control. This book is easy to read, the methods are simple and can be implemented immediately. I used this firm, yet calm and loving approach in a 6th grade school camp that I attended as a chaperone, and I did not have any problems with disobedience whatsoever. Being precise really works. It has also worked very well in our own home, and several things I could never get my daughter to do are routine now. I recommend this book, if you want something that doesn't give you psychobabble, but gets straight to the point.
