"The Answer is No" by Cynthia Whitman
On my trip to the library this week I picked up a copy of The Answer Is NO: Saying It and Sticking to Itby Cynthia Whitham.
This easy-to-read book tackles 26 situations that plague parents and caregivers of two- to 12-year-olds. There are some things in life that are not negotiable. For example, biting, fighting in the car, finicky eating, being monstrous in company, not doing homework, and swearing. This book helps define values, build good parenting habits, and set firm, fair limits. Click here to see Cynthia Whitham's advice on how to deal with a child that lies.
If you have ever had trouble saying "No" and sticking to it with the children in your care, this is a concise and easy book to read to help with common, yet difficult, issues that often come up when caring for kids.
