Item description for How to Behave So Your Children Will, Too! by Sal Severe...
Overview Provides advice that teaches parents how to be consistent in disciplining children, manage anger, prevent arguments, and ways to reinforce good behavior instead of criticizing the child.
Publishers Description In this eye-opening resource, Dr. Sal Severe taps his twenty-five years of experience as a school psychologist and parenting workshop leader to show that a child's behavior is often a reflection of the parent's behavior, and by making changes themselves, parents can achieve dramatic results in their children. Instead of focusing on what children do wrong, Dr. Severe teaches parents to emphasize the positive, to be consistent, and to be more patient. He shows parents how to teach their children to behave, listen, and be more cooperative, and how moms and dads can manage their own anger and prevent arguments and power struggles. Packed with concrete strategies for dealing with homework hassles, ending tantrums, and other common problems, Dr. Severe's empathetic, common-sense book will be welcome everywhere.

zero stars wasn't an option ! Jun 10, 2008
This book is the single worst book on child-rearing I have ever read. And I've read alot of books about children's self-esteem, motivating them, having a peaceful family life, etc. This book is, by far, the most uninspiring, unmotivating, unreseached, and unhelpful book out there. It was so hard to follow the message that the author was trying to convey. He jumped around so much, I was getting so frustrated trying to read this sad excuse for a book. The author never finished a complete thought without moving on to another topic and then would jump back and try to reference previous chapters that had been left unexplained. The basic premise of the book seemed great, but definately fell flat. The author just could not adequately carry out his message and I was disappointed and wasted too much time on this book and didn't even reap any new knowledge from it.
Helpful advice for all parents, great book! Dec 4, 2007
Really helpful tips on getting your child to move in the most positive direction; on being consistent; on incentives and on discipline (which the author emphasizes is not so much about punishment as it is about teaching). I recommend this book to all parents.
So excellent!! Jul 2, 2007
I have read a few different books on this subject, and they were all fairly similar, but this one is definitely my favorite. I read it in two days, it is so concise and well written. It is full of how-to's and great suggestions for a wide scope of issuses. It is not a hyped-up bribery system, as one poster stated. Just the opposite. The author shows you how to motivate your children externally, but more importantly, how to get them to want to be good for the sake of being good and feeling good about themselves. It is a very positive approach without being permissive. LOVE IT!!! My almost 4 year old is behaving better already- no joke!

Take the naughty out of your naughty little children Dec 20, 2006
I love this book and have lent it and recommended it to every parent I know. I got it from Half-Priced Books and highlighted my way through it, taking notes as I went along because everything in it makes sense and inspires you to be a better parent. Even though I read it years ago and my dumb dog chewed up my copy (too bad there's no How to Behave So Your Dog Will, Too! version) I still reference it often for some of the hundreds of ideas on how to effectively, positively interact with and support my 4 kids (ages 4,8,9 and 10). This book has been a Godsend! This guy should do nothing but teach classes--if everyone in this generation took care of their responsibilities as parents and raised their children CORRECTLY, the world would be a much different place 15 years from now. If you'd like to establish mutual respect, accountability and self-discipline in your children before they become insane teenagers, Buy this book NOW, and NEVER GIVE AWAY THE ICE CREAM!!!
