Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell". But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness.

Very well told, interesting and moving! Definitely recommend... It made me laugh and cry. Not the type of story I would normally listen to, and it was a wonderful change of pace. Loved it!

Fed up with the constant arguing and feeling like you can't get ahead of your three-year-old's constantly changing wants, needs, and opinions? Would you love to have a pause button when your little one is throwing a tantrum at the supermarket? Do you find yourself losing your temper when your kids misbehave and no matter how many times you remind them, they just keep doing the things you want them to stop doing?

Had just started struggling with some tantrums for my toddler, and this book gave many good pointers on how to resolve issues. Very short and applicable lessons. A good reminder to not get so frustrated over little things, and how to react to your child's issues. Have actually seen great improvement in my toddler very quickly with small suggestions and changes! Looking forward to downloading the visual charts as well.
