I wanted to send you an email to let you know that I am so grateful that I found your website and “THE GOOD CHILD” book. I have two boys aged 4 & 2, I know that your book is primarily for 5-12yo but I thought I would give it a go. Since reading your book 2 weeks ago I am absolutely amazed how much calmer my home is. Hopefully we are over the worst.
The case that you gave about the “biscuit” was what persuaded me to buy the book. While reading the book I started to understand where things were going wrong. I was getting into an argument with my 4yo son and as you say he was winning everytime. He was taking the gamble and winning. Since doing things by the book, he now knows that I mean what I say. Hopefully by reading your book now when the boys are young we will always have this strategy in place to be good parents and have good children.
Thank you for writing the book. Our family and home is certainly better for it. I know that there will still be days when they are very trying, however the yelling and screaming days are behind us. I am a much calmer person towards my children and we have lots of fun days together.
I hope you enjoyed reading my short but sweet success story.
