All of the different examples of how the strong willed child acts and the different roll plays of how you should respond to each strong willed child's act. This helped extremely!!!
"The Dance". This hit home for me. My 5 yr. old is constantly trying to talk his way out of things. I assumed he would turn out to be a great attorney :) This book is the only reason I have learned to put a stop to "The Dance" which was so exhausting!
Every day that I woke up and every night that went to bed I stressed over how I could get my child to listen. I did not understand what I was doing wrong. I thought I was faulted for my parenting skills. This book lifted a huge weight off my shoulders. It gave me a greater understanding off my strong willed child's thought processes which in turn helped me understand the author's approach. And his approach for my son's strong-willedness was spot on! At the end of the day the author taught me how to be consistent and to the point. You can hear those words and think I don't need a book, I can do that. But, the book provides so many examples of approaches on almost every situation which gives you an amazing head start!
