Publisher's Summary

Today's parents have been sold a bill of goods on so-called "quality time." They've been led to believe that children require constant attention. Psychologist John Rosemond knows that being a good parent is really about helping children get out of their lives! His easy-to-follow plan will start parents and children on the road to happiness and self-esteem by explaining how to: put marriage first, expect children to obey, establish responsibility by assigning chores, encourage creativity by minimizing TV viewing, and more. By practicing Rosemond's simple plan, parents can free themselves from guilt, exhaustion, and anger - and free their children to lead happy, responsible lives of their own.

    "Six-Point Plan for Raising Happy, Healthy Children"

    Even if you don't necessarily agree with his views, a very thought provoking examination of the mother-father/wife-husband relationships, toys and I especially liked his views on television. This book is worth it just to hear about why parents should not necessarily feel good about letting their kids watch "educational" programs between the ages of 2-6 (so much for Baby Einstein!).

    "Great suggestions"

    Good common sense. It's stuff that's on the surface but unrecognizable as the source of behavioral problems. He gives good examples of how to make changes.

    "Great book"

    This is a very useful book, and read well by the author. It gives good, practical techniques for steering your kids to be useful, helpful, cooperative, and on the road to self-sufficiency. Especially enlightening was the advice on keeping an emphasis on the marriage relationship, as it serves as a model for your kids' views on marital relationships.

    "PARENTS- LISTEN TO THIS!!"

    John Rosemund is an excellent parenting coach. I've read several of his books. His approach is common sense, no-nonsense and practical. I definitely recommend this book for all parents.

    "Life changing"

    I wish he had more audio books! I guess I will just have to READ his other books. I highly recommend anything by John Rosemond.

    "Just what I needed!"

    I have shied away from Rosemond because he seemed too tough, but now that my kids are older, I see the common sense in all that he says in this book. It is startling how bad TV is for us and yet we keep watching. Thanks to this book, I will definitely be cutting it off.

    "Mostly agree with author but weak evidence"

    I just finished listening to three books on parenting; Six-Point Plan for Raising Happy, Healthy Children; Wonderful Ways to Love a Child; and ScreamFree Parenting.

    While I tended to agree with this author's opinions on parenting, I found his arguments to be lacking. Most of his thoughts boiled down to opinion based upon experience. However, this is not valid evidence from a scientific perspective.

    I would have preferred to have more evidence presented in the form of peer reviewed research and not solely trust the author's expertise.

    "The horse is dead....."

    The author makes some very salient points - in the first 30 minutes. The book is two and a half hours long.

    "Do not waste your money on this sexist garbage."

    As an educated woman, stay at home wife & mother I am extremely offended by this mans views of women & family. Don't waste your time or money on this book!
