a book for serious problems Jan 22, 2008
The service was great and the mailing fast.But with every page that I read I had a sigh of relief,feeling that my kid is much more obedient then I thought, because the problems that are shown how to deal with are pretty sever in my opinion.Anyway, it gave me a lots to think about and some nice suggestions to my minor troubles with my kid.
A Little Helpful Mar 12, 2007
As the title hints, the case studies in the book are so outlandish as to make it hard to relate. My kid does some things that I would like him to stop doing, but I had already used most of the ideas suggested in this book (such as be a good role model). It was nice to see that my parenting instincts keep me going in the right direction, but I stopped reading it because of the almost cartoonish descriptions of misbehavior. I think maybe some people could get use out of the suggestions if they are not put off by the premise that their kid embodies every evil under the sun.
Not so great Jan 9, 2007
This book talks more about describing the bad attitudes instead of simple, easy techniques to stop them. Not easy to use, not easy to read.
I'm a real fan of Michele Borba's books so I must admit I've been waiting for Don't Give Me That Attitude! This one is one of her best. I'm a counselor and deal with kids with "attitudes" (though most parents would call them behavior problems) -- manipulative, defiant, cheating, arrogant, you name it. The problem is there really wasn't much out there in the way of specifics to help parents. But these makeovers for bad attitudes are realistic and specific. There are so many strategies and ideas .. checklists.. resources.. and stepby step guidelines. The only thing I'd caution a parent about is not to think you have to do it all. Just turn to the attitude you think needs tuning up -- and dig in. The book is a goldmine!~
Highly Recommended For All Parents Apr 3, 2004
I've read all of Michele Borba's books. To me, she stands for the kind of parent I want to be: you can't just sit back and expect everything to go well. You have to get engaged and if there's a problem you have to deal with it. I love my kid -- he's great-- but he's been home lately with a back talking attitude. I couldn't believe his flippant tone and I didn't know how to deal with it. And then I picked up Borba's new book. The great part is that I was able to go to contents, find the attitude, and immediately turn to the section and get point by point steps to do to turn it around. It's been only three days, but I'm already seeing a big change in my child. I've read alot of other parent books. Most are so filled with theory and vague generalities. The great thing about Michele Borba's books is that they are very specific and action oriented and give you real live activities you can do. Try it and you'll see.
