Didn't realize this was an abridged version.

The first chapter gave an overview of what to do each day of the week to change your children's behaviour. Unfortunately, the more in-depth explanation and practical application of how to implement this program seems to be missing. The last 3 chapters are just an alphabetical list of possible situations and how to handle them. They are very brief and simplified and because it is in alphabetical order it doesn't really follow a logical order.

I was a little bit disappointed not realizing that I had purchased an abridged version.

Possibly better as a book to read vs. audio?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes! The information is great and very usuful. Leman's advice is spot on and has helped me raise my boys.

What other book might you compare Have a New Kid by Friday to and why?


What does Wayne Shepherd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

well...this is my issue. Wayne did a great job...but I feel like the book was better written for READING versus LISTENING.
The sequence of advice was hard for me to follow because the book jumps around a lot from age group to age group. I got lost...pretty often. I was also distracted by my kids, I'm sure....but if I was reading, I could have underlined important facts and taken notes on things that struck me! I'm gonna have to listen again to really retain all the info.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?
