Reviews - What do customers think about No More Misbehavin': 38 Difficult Behaviors and How to Stop Them?
Disappointing, fails to live up to title's promise Jun 7, 2007
This is a simplistic parenting overview -- not a series of solutions for a child's most difficult behaviors. The traits included are very significant and deserve serious treatment, not matter-of-fact tips that can be found in any parenting magazine which is what the book contains. For example, the chapter on bossiness - a complex and serious negative behavior trait - gives three overly simplistic tips and then asks the parent to consider a series of questions about why the trait is bothersome. It does a very poor job of explaining the root of bossiness and gives overly simplistic advice, like "raise the child's self-esteem." If I knew how to do that, I wouldn't have had to buy the book! Try another resource. This one won't help.

This book was not very good. It doesn't give enough solutions to behavior problems.
BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT NOW! Dec 17, 2005
If you are having problems finding the words or techniques to lovingly and effectively correct your children this IS the book for you.
I became the instant (step)parent of two boys 7 and 9 who are for the most part great children, but at times need to be disciplined. I was at a loss at to how to approach the problem, but this book has given me clear and direct tools to become an effective parent.
Not useful for our child Jul 6, 2005
The title was rather seductive ... but I was disappointed, if validated. I am by no means mom of the year, but I think I already follow most of what the book suggests. This book is likely good for parents who are gobsmacked by newly emerged bad behaviors and recalcitrance, but those of us who have spent any time with the "Spririted," "Explosive" and "Active/Alert" child books will have seen/implemented most of the recommendations already.
Basic Knowledge For Parents Oct 19, 2004
This book was just okay, it has a few good points but most of it was common knowledge if you are in touch with your children and how to manage their behavior...great book to get from the libray, not one to purchase.
