    "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.

    Story
    "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?

    Parenting By the Book! IT'S MY FAVORITE PARENTING BOOK SO FAR!


    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?

    no

    "Have a New Kid By Friday "

    I love Dr Leman. I've heard him on radio interviews. His simplistic approach is refreshing and hopeful. A must read (listen) for every exhausted parent!

    "Good one"

    I recommend this. Good information. Good balanced approach that makes sense. It isn't a whimpy parenting book - do what ever feels good. Not too crazy - just good discipline and rules.

    "What is up with all the religious underpinnings?"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad this book was abridged. There are some good points made but I got fed up with all the religious comments. The author could have easily left those out since it did not add to his arguments.
