In this wise and informative parenting guide, Elaine Rose Glickman shows listeners how loving your kid enough to be the boss will result in happier, healthier, and much easier-to-be-around children.
You've seen them-kids running wild through restaurants while the parents avert their gaze and order another cappuccino. You've heard them-kids telling their parents to "shut up" and "get me that." You've met them-kids who dress inappropriately, roll their eyes, and never say "thank you." Maybe one of those kids belongs to you.
Combining incisive commentary with grounded, practical advice, Your Kid's a Brat and It's All Your Fault will have you recognizing and laughing at yourself, your fellow parents, and a culture that seems determined to turn our precious angels into not-so-precious brats. Divided into three sections-"Your Budding Brat" for toddlers and preschoolers, "Your Bratty Child" for grade-schoolers, and "Your Bratty Tween"-this book is packed with wisdom and tips culled from the trenches of child-rearing. Your Kid's a Brat and It's All Your Fault will help you grow adept at responding to specific misbehavior and will encourage and empower you to become the confident, respected parent you yearn to be. "Our wonderful kids we love so much can be selfish, interrupting, non-sharing, meal-ruining, bank-breaking, party-demanding brats. That doesn't mean things can't change, especially with a little help from someone calm and smart and, thank god, funny. You're holding her book in your trembling hands now!"-Lenore Skenazy, author of Free-Range Kids
