Getting the Little Blighters to Behave

by Claire Potter

Getting the Little Blighters to Behave Synopsis

They're squealing for a packet of strawberry squiggles in the supermarket... refusing to put their coat on even though it's below freezing outside... squabbling over who gets the cup with the kangaroo on it... or running around with their pants on their head when they're meant to be putting their pyjamas on. Let's face it, life with kids can be exhausting and exasperating. Sometimes you can find yourself nagging, negotiating, battling and bellowing your way through the whole day. Surely it's not meant to be this hard, you think. Roll on bedtime! Here, in one little book, is everything you need to know to make your day-to-day life as a parent easier. Based on in-depth interviews with child psychologists, it gives you techniques, tactics, tips and tricks that research shows actually work. The clear, practical, punchy advice tells you exactly how to deal with your child's unwanted behaviours and shifts the dynamic of your relationship so your child not only co-operates but wants to co-operate in the first place. Finally, it will feel like you are on the same team! And that way, not only will your life be easier, but you'll be able to enjoy your child's company a whole lot more!
