I don't have kids but I got a lot from this!

The baby self or inner brat as is a more common name is well explained and that alone made this book useful despite my lack of offspring.

Guidall really nails this performance

I love this book, and I would recommend it to any parent who wants help with how to impose discipline on their children without anger. There is no question that I feel like a better parent when I employ the principles from this book.

But I wanted to write a review primarily to give George Guidall props for a fantastic reading. This material is tough, because there are many sample dialogues between kids and parents, and Guidall manages to perform these and make them believable without being cartoonish or silly. I think it must be hard for an adult to read text like "I want my doggy shirt!" in a way that would remind you of a child tantrum without making you want to turn it off immediately. And Guidall makes all these dialogues seem very genuine.
