I have twin toddlers. I love the advice in this book. I hope it works :). I have recommended this book to any frustrated parents I know.
Very important for the every day rules and tactics with your kids. It make the house much more positive and quiet.
I have read Noel's other book for parents with boys and wanted to get this as a refresher and also because I have a daughter too. I thought that the concepts and examples would be easier to absorb if they were told to me. Unfortunately I found Noel's voice rather annoying and she droned on and on about why this method works before getting on with how it works and all the examples. The examples are embedded within all the explanations so they were easily missed. I think the printed version might be better for such books since you can flip back and forth and go back to the relevant topics and to the examples you want.
I gave up half way through this book. Might pick it up again if I have a long journey and feel like sleeping.

I am doing psychology and baby psychology. If you want to learn about this method of parenting just look up Positive Reinforcement instead of listening to hours and hours of this. This is literally just a woman giving hundreds of examples of positive reinforcement, calling it her own twist by renaming it positive praise.
The only thing I have to praise her on is that this must have been a great easy money maker for her.
Positive reinforcement is well known to be the most encouraging way of supporting others especially as a parent or carer for a child. That is why people have given this great reviews, she has added very little of her own additions on top of positive reinforcement. I was expecting so much more out of this.
If you want a good relationship with your children you need to understand positive reinforcement, empathy and how to be authoritative without being authoritarian. I guess this is one way about learning about positive reinforcement
