Description

You don’t have to say yes to prove that you love them. “Describes helpful, pertinent, and loving ways to correct spoiled behavior before it becomes a serious problem.” —ParentWorld Nearly 95% of parents feel like they are overindulging their children, but feel powerless to stopping themselves. How to Unspoil Your Child Fast offers a straightforward and practical solution to fixing and preventing the problems of spoiling your children and offers concrete tips, simple strategies, and easy action steps for reversing the effects almost immediately. Feel more confident, competent, and parent more consistently while instilling character and self-reliance in your children today. What parents are saying: “Wonderful, trenchant, and desperately needed.” “Short, sweet and to the point for those of us who don’t have time to waste.” “Truly sensible and useful.” “Although my daughters like being doted on, they think I parent better...when I utilize many of Dr. Bromfield’s suggestions. I highly recommend this book.” “A snappy read, so you can’t claim you don’t have time. And the method’s simple, so you can’t pretend you aren’t qualified to use it.” —Newsday
