    1. By the end of the summer I was losing my mind with my older daughters, ages 9 and 7 This book suggestion popped up in a weekly e mail, and I really needed new kids by Friday if not sooner A few chapters in, I read than one a day I need to get the program going I really like the common sense approach, and the fact that you are shaping attitute, behavior and character they are all intertwined I started changing my approach already today, and we made it all the way to bedtime with no yelling or cr [...]


    2. Confession this was a book my husband INSISTED that I read, not one that I picked out by choice I have to say that overall, I felt that Leman only made two valid points throughout the entire book, and that the rest was just filler or letters from grateful readers, plugging this book The first point that I felt merited some thought was to not encourage engage in arguing with your child Later, when they want some favor or treat, you say no if they ask why, you explain once that you did not appreci [...]


    3. Thanks to my MiL for getting this book for me She was rightme of the ideas this guy uses are excellent He is practical and has a down to earth approach to problems we all face as parents That being said, I did NOT like all of his personal examples They read a lot like this, My children are so angelic We are such awesome parents We have never made a mistake and our children are perfect Just listen to what my daughter son did It was HIGHLY annoying Common sense says that parents who might choose t [...]


    4. Dr Kevin Leman s title, Have a New Kid By Friday, fools parents into thinking that this book will change their kid s rotten behavior, when in reality it is the parent who must change first He knew no one would buy a book called I m a Lousy Parent, I Need A Fast Track Remedial Course This hilarious book is a wonderful source of practical, easy to remember gems like, Say it once, turn your back, and walk away and B doesn t happen until A is done Leman s primary premise is that kids are born selfis [...]


    5. Dr Leman makes some good points about setting the appropriate tone for a parent child relationship, about boundaries and respect In fact, I agree with most of his broader statements about kids and their needs His talk and walk away approach is probably only effective with some kids, though I think my personality is far to direct to get involved in child psychology I ve probably formed my parenting habits from my Mom, who was a pretty no nonsense person She spoke as though our not doing something [...]


    6. This has some good pointers overall, but most of it didn t apply to our particular family, since we re homeschoolers who don t have the typical American family schedule I liked the suggestions for practical consequences to unwanted behaviors but was disappointed at how many don t apply to us.


    7. Came close to giving it 1 star because parts of it were SO bad I almost didn t finish it But I must reluctantly admit that his main message is powerful enough to be of help to many people say it once, then walk away B doesn t happen until A happens don t get angry but apologize if you do etc.However, his main points are buried in a book dominated by so many flaws that I found it painful to read The most important of these flaws are covered by other reviews, but to list a few that bugged me the m [...]


    8. This book is so amazing It has opened my eyes to a whole new way of thinking about parenting Reality is a way better teacher than I will ever be and I have to remember to be of a guide for my children rather than a tyrant This helped me to understand the reasons my children behave and have the reactions they do I love this book and recommend it to anyone who wants to treat their children better and have a better stress free life My kids are 10 and 12 and even though we are just starting to chan [...]


    9. In surfing bestsellers this came up The title seemed so funny that I had to get info.After reading the book and testing out some of the ideas in a modified way in my classroom, I have to say that this stuff really does seem to work as far as getting difficult kids to see that it is time for them to change Not only did it give me some new techniques for working with kids, but the advice that really helped me was that of not feeling guilty about offering true guidance to kids, which sometimes com [...]


    10. I didn t care for this book He s a little too conservative for me, although that s not my main issue My main problem with his parenting advice is that much of what he recommends to correct or change a child s behavior shame based He says if you allow your child to be in a situation where he is ashamed or embarrassed in front of his peers, he will quickly change his behavior The LAST thing I want to convey to my children is a sense of shame The main purpose of how I parent is to teach them that G [...]


    11. Excellent resource that every parent should read Even if you do not have a trouble child, this book gives excellent ideas of how to build good attitudes, behavior, and character in your children It also helps you discover what kind of parent you are and what changes you can make in yourself to be a better parent It is a helpful resource for anyone working with children as well The techniques and lessons can be applied to the children you work with.


    12. Eh was ok The author s attitude was a bit off putting And while I love the idea of natural consequences, I think it is somewhat difficult to implement because not every situation really has a tidy resolution like this author implies Still, it was a good common sense guide and a reminder to not play into my children s dramas.


    13. Okay, I hate the title I am all for accepting kids for who they are But I have to say this parenting book was a good fit for me I learned was reminded of some very important things, especially how not to nag AND it has really helped.



    14. A surprisingly simple and common sense book for the off hand title I keep failing on one of the most important points, though I repeat my orders over and over That s going to be tough to change Especially since I never know if he s heard me over his god awful incessant racket.


    15. Stil pl cut Mi s a p rut interesant abordarea copiilor timizi Pentru el un copil timid e unul puternic i chiar unul egoist Nu tiam c Freud considera c cei care fumeaz au r mas la stadiul oral neprimind suficient stimulare la s n de la mam.


    16. Years ago I spied a friend reading a book titled, How to Make Kids Mind Without Losing Your s I was intrigued D, but I never got around to borrowing it.A few weeks ago I saw this book, by the same author, lying in our Library Sale stack What a gem Mr Leman is clear and to the point A few things I especially appreciated is the way he placed focus on the need your children have for time with you building relationship They might not be conscious of this, either because they are 2, 12, or 20 but you [...]


    17. Very good, but also VERY difficult to put into practice Goes against a lot of the general ideas of how a lot of us parent today I never thought of praising my kids as doing them a disservice, but after reading his thoughts, I agree Encouragement is good, but that is different than praising, which is what most of us do The first chapters are about the general principles of his parenting theory, which I would sum up as parents need to stay in control, not get angry, say it once and walk away, then [...]


    18. Great book with strategies that work to restore order, calm, and RESPECT to a family Some of the ideas in certain situations strike me as a little harsh, but I also understand that the purpose is to get the child s attention and quickly change negative attitude, character, and behavior I really like the strategy B doesn t happen until A is complete I also like the reminder to not warn remind children continually they are smart people If I don t nag them, there s a greater chance they ll listen a [...]


    19. On my quest to improve my parenting, I have read many, many, many, many books A lot were really good, some were just ok I just read Have a New Kid by Friday by, Dr Kevin Leman It was pretty good I would give it 4 or 5 stars Easy to read, simple steps to implement, reminders of what really I already know, but it is often so hard to DO what we know we should I guess I don t know for sure if it works yet, because as we all know, it means I need to change, in order for it to work Jenn is doing Love [...]


    20. This book is brilliant in its simplicity and rooted in sound principles It s a good, quick read for anyone struggling with a strong willed child, and has the potential to be very helpful However It s strongly rooted in American Christian Conservative cultural values, and may be less palatable to those of other backgrounds It makes false assurances of 100% effectiveness that make it sound unnecessarily like snake oil Just walk away your child will back down is advice that succeeds most of the tim [...]


    21. Kevin Leman is a psychologist who has 5 kids and has written 30 books Here s his scenario Kid behaves badly, Mum says no to cookies and milk Honey, I told you we re not having cookies and milk today Matthew was stunned He opened his mouth to argue, then walked away sadly Here s what would happen in real life Matthew was stunned He screamed for 2 hours and threw a chair at the wall Or Matthew was stunned He argued all afternoon, all night, and continued arguing until his parents were so exhausted [...]


    22. What stuck with me the most from this book is if Dr Leman ever gives you a ride somewhere, you d better say thank you At least three times But spitting out his car windows is a ok.Seriously, aside from a random rant warning against nursing past one how does this have anything to do with discipline and some rather horrifying advice lock a kid who refuses to stay in bed outside for 10 minutes the guiding principle of this book is good when B, then A I tried it last night after finishing the book a [...]


    23. Despite the fact that I was irked by the audacious claim of a 100% guarantee this parenting method will work in 5 days, I liked this book The first 1 3 introduced a new strategy for dealing with behavior issues for Monday through Friday The next 2 3 of the book applied the strategies to specific problems from A Z allowances to youth groups It seems like a version of Love and Logic It sounds sensible to me and gave me some good tips for dealing with my preschoolers A lot of this will be applicab [...]


    24. Think harshbut very interesting approach Straightforward, no nonsense Not too harsh if implemented as soon as child starts to think for himself but pretty harsh if implemented later in life But it is a really funny read and I actually implemented a few things and got immediate results I m waiting for Don to read because he says what I ve told him so far goes against my total constitution.


    25. I really like Dr Leman and he has some excellent ideas on raising kids Only problem that I had was that my child did not always respond to the situation like Dr Leman thought the child would Hence, I did not have a new kid by Friday I kind of liked the kid I have anyway Dr Leman is very entertaining


    26. I like his technique, but sometimes harder to pull off than suggested Example I am at home before taking the kids somewhere The kids start being disobedient, very disobedient I am feeling claustrophobic in my little house with momentarily disobedient kids Am I likely to pull the we are not going anywhere afterall card Not likely But done right, his techniques are stellar


    27. I m still waiting for my new kid to arrive in the mail My son saw the book and actually asked if we were going to get a new kid I told him that yes, we were going to get a new kid replace the old ones.he thought that was so funny.Good ideas, helpful info In all actuality, after reading this book, I realized that my kids are actually GREAT kids afterall


    28. We were so needing a big change around here and my mother in law sent this one to us It is a lot of commonsense information but sometimes we just need to be hit over the head with it for it to sink in I read this in just a couple of days and started implementing the ideas Surprisingly we are already seeing a change in our headstrong, difficult child.


    29. Loved this book Especially when the author actually gives you the actions and words to use in certain situations, not just tell you you need to change and give no direction Must read for all parents.
