    3-0 out of 5 stars Worth a look
    First I must say that I am not a fan of Dr. Phil so I know very little of this author's reputation. (I not an 'anti-fan' of Dr. Phil either, just not big on TV)
    4-0 out of 5 stars Not sure about this one
    I think that this book is a good teaching tool for all these parents who want to prepare their children to score high in the IQ test. But when you think of that carefully, doesn't this defeat the idea of your intelligence being measurable by IQ tests? If you can improve the score by preparing yourself to the test that means that the test does not really measure your intelligence, but only your ability to score high on the test. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's a good book - read it.
    I would recommend this book to any parent who is experiencing trouble with overprotected and/or overindulged children. Though I am myself not Jewish I liked how the author - based on Jewish beliefs - reassured parents that it is ok to set limits and ask your children to pay you the due respect. Afterall, you are supposed to be your child's parent and not his/her friend! Parenting is not about pampering or protecting but about preparing for life. Even from a non-religious point of view the book made some good points; a lot of the other suggestions made in the book were pretty much common sense but I guess that also depends where you come from. What I liked most about it though was that it encouraged parents to accept that a kid might just be "normal" and it is somtimes more important to accept that than to try to turn your child into something it is not (read: a genius). It's a good book - read it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Wisdom for the new parent
    Jewish or not - this book has a great read tone to it, feels pratical and possible and is always going to stay on my shelf.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful book
    I find I don't come down solidly on either side of the argument between putting children's needs first or maintaining a more traditional strict discipline, denying kids' their wants to build character.I think of the former as the theory promoted by La Leche League, and I do feel that kids have legitimate needs, and those needs should be acknowledged and met.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Huge Disappointment
    I bought this book as soon as I saw it because I have always loved Robin and her deep passion for being a mother.I started reading right away and couldn't believe how this book has little to no substance.I'm not really interested in how she met Phil and where she worked, we all have these stories.I thought this would be more about her convictions and devotion to her family.Instead I was bored, not interested and quickly realized this book was an ego boost more than a helpful read.I have yet to finish because it is so difficult to trudge through.

    I have to say this is a great book and i really enjoyed it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Women
    Inside My Heart is a must-read for women, and I mean all women...single, married, those who stay home, those who work outside the home and those who do both.Robin's story inspires us to tune into our own inner voice, our intuition and to stand up when we know we're right.Robin McGraw uses her story to show us that none of us lead perfect lives, but we have the tools to handle life's challenges and to overcome them with grace.You will be able to relate to one or more of Robin's experiences and use it to improve your own life.Don't put off reading this book, it is a true inspiration! ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars busy, wordy and uninspiring
    I got this book for my foster teens but tossed it in the recycling bin instead. The book is full of chatter; the authors never get to the point.Plus all the illustrations, boxes and fonts, which I guess are supposed to be hip, give you a headache. I did plog through this quagmire long enough to confirm the authors weren't saying anything that would inspire a kid, so it's just as well they slathered it with window dressing. The book dies have a catchy cover, which I assume is designed to attract parents, not kids.Heck, I bought it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars bit much for my 12 year old
    My 12 year old got bored with it, she's probably too young for this book.I am hoping she will pick it up in a year or so. I thought it was interesting and usefull.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The 7 HABITS of Highly Effective TEENS
    This book: The 7 HABITS of Highly Effective TEENS, included many wonderful/helpful ideas, wich i used and enjoyed on my own. This book is what i call a guidance book. That helps in my eyes young teens who have problems in highly effective areas. This book basically shows you how to develope good habbits, it makes you become a better person, working on your personality and bad habits. the author gave you his fathers seven habbits to success in all parts of life. The author Sean Covey, put it in a fun and easy way to understand the point of this wonderful book.This book was actually a slight help to both me and my mother. I learned to work things out with her, and agree on things easier.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best baby sign language product to get started with!
    This kit is excellent! My daughter is 20 months old and she can sign about 90 signs! She communicates so well with us that she does not ever cry or whine for things and she understands us so well! This kit has all that you need to get started signing with babies! The dvd even has Joseph Garcia signing so you can see how the signs are made. You can also go to the specific word that you would like to see how to sign such as BABY. The laminated guide is great too-you can carry it in the diaper bag or let Grandma borrow it! I buy this for all of my friends that are expecting!

    I bought this product when my son was only 3 months old.Unfortunately, it wasn't until I opened the product that I learned that they recommend you starting at 7 months.I wish that would have been clear before I bought it.So I haven't started to use it yet...so I don't have any thoughts on the actual product...YET.;-)

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Price is psychologically devastatingly high.Read the book to protect your family from psychological dysfunction
    This is an excellent book about how the affluent have adopted undermining values (perfectionism, materialism) and how it negatively affects parenting style and causes psychological neurosis among teens.I am the parent of a teenage daughter who goes to a public high school in Marin County.Thus, we live in the social milieu described by Dr. Levine.The book content was both shocking and revealing to me.When I shared some of Dr. Levine's findings that I could not believe I would ask my daughter about them.Invariably, she confirmed that Dr. Levine was correct.That's how I found out that one of my daughter's acquaintances did cut herself frequently.That's also when I knew that Dr. Levine was onto something and not just sensationalizing another marketable myth about Marin County.Also, this book really is not about Marin County as it depicts a nationwide prevalent phenomenon of teenage psychological dysfunction among the affluent.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Reinforcing the basics
    A family does not have to be "affluent" in the dollar amounts Dr. Levine describes, to have very similar issues. Middle class kids have "stuff", are envious of the designer "stuff" and haven't a sense of purpose of themselves. The truth is that many of the parents don't seem to either because they are caught up with evrything else except their kids. Kids from lower class to upper class all seem to have phones, Ipods, etc. While reading this book, I spoke with my 14-year old daughter who agreed with much of what the kids felt in the book and realized quite to her surprise that things aren't appreciated as well when not earned. Many of the cases are sad and the acting out for attention in extreme ways seems to happen more frequently. Cutting, getting high, lying, and failing school on purpose are done without seeing future consequences. I think therapy can work for all those frustrated parents and their kids. This is an informative book and what I took from it is: be a parent not a friend, establish rules and stick to them, help kids when warranted and don't let things go too far before doing something.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Parenting Book for EVERY Parent (not just the rich ones)
    Don't judge this book by its title.Parents at every income level will find it helpful.Although the book focuses somewhat on the emotional problems of priveleged youth, The Price of Privelege is a goldmine of valuable information and advice on parenting that we ALL could use.As a child psychologist, I have worked with children and families from all walks for life for the last 12 years.I have seen parents at all income levels make the same mis-steps that Levine talks about.Levine lays out, very clearly, why so much of what parents currently believe to be "good" parenting is at best unhelpful, and at worst destructive (news flash: controlling your child's behavior will help him/her be a happier person and do better in college; praise undermines confidence and effort; self-esteem is not as important as you think it is; chores are good for children).

    3-0 out of 5 stars Sleep, Sleep, Sleep
    No need for letting a baby cry.Lots of need for structered naps.Why not look a little at nutrition and a little at spirituality? The "Dr." comes from a "doctor's" point of view. Native Americans used cradleboards that rocked the child naturally to sleep while suspended from a branch.Sounds archaic.Some new-agers use essential oils and diffuse "Gentle Baby" or "Peace and Calming." I read, "Forget The Cures, Find The Cause," and learned about the body, mind, and spirit of my children.They all sleep now, and so do I.I wish the doctors that write these books, Weisbuth especially, would do a little research they profess to be good at, and learn a more holistic approach to children's health, and for that matter, ours.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best source available on the subject
    Dr. Weisbluth's book was lent to me by a friend just as my daughter was turning 5 1/2 months old. She had changed from a great sleeper to miserable and I couldn't figure out why. I had said from the beginning that I would never let my child "cry it out" and I resisted when people mentioned this book because I was concerned that I would have to do just that. But, after reading his book cover to cover I learned Dr. Weisbluth's book doesn't focus on letting your child cry. He explains when and why you should put your child down to sleep and addresses the emotions parents feel if their child does cry for any length of time. After reading this book I discovered my daughter was overtired and once I started following the nap guidelines her bedtime went from crying and screaming to quietly laying down ech night. Do not let people scare you with the "crying it out" part - as I said Dr. Weissbluth's book addresses much more and I'm so happy that we decided to try his techniques. If you are having a difficult time with naptime or bedtime I highly recommend this book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars You've got to read this book!
    I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days. It's a huge book, a great resource that is well researched and written.. I have a few friends who've purchased this book and really loved it too. I can highly recommend this book.

    This book is a MUST for any new parents!I have given this as a gift to every one of my pregnant friends and family.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Helps millions of families from pregnancy through the toddler years.
    Heidi Murkoff is co-author--along with Arlene Eisenberg and Sandee Hathaway--of The What To Expect Series--the best selling pregnancy and parenting books in the world. She's also a director on the board of The What to Expect Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing low-income parents with the information and support they need to have healthy and happy babies. Heidi Murkoff's book: What to Expect When You're Expecting, offers advice to parents about how to deal with the multitude of information now available to parents. In essence, the abundance of information available to parents can be overwhelming and lead parents to believe more in parenting experts than in themselves. We have only to look at the past several generations of American mothers who believed religiously in child-rearing experts who based much of their advice upon biased, unsound, and unscientific personal opinions. However, there is really good information available to parents now to encourage them to refine intuition by broadening their knowledge base and wisdom through education. You should trust yourselves when you parent your children more humanely and with greater respect and love. This is a good book, especially for first time mothers(parents) loaded with pictures and information detailing the monthly changes in the mothers body. Heidi Murkoff writes in a step-by-step manner, intended to walk you through this delicate time in your life--which is informative. What to Expect When You're Expecting will answer most of your questions--it also details what may go wrong. But be warned, Heidi Murkoff's style can be annoying and difficult to follow. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Mastering the Emotional Realm
    Great spiritual teachers, like Buddha and Jesus, have touched their disciples' hearts by speaking in the language of emotion, teaching in parables, fables, and stories. Indeed, religious symbol and ritual makes little sense from the rational point of view; it is couched in the vernacular of the heart. ~Daniel Goleman
    4-0 out of 5 stars Feeling smart, feeling good...
    Ever since I read Martin Gardiner's book on multiple intelligences, I have been intrigued by the study of how we learn and the different types of intelligence. No one disputes that mathematical/analytical brain-power is a very different type of intelligence from the kind of bodily intelligence that makes someone a graceful gymnast or a super athlete; while there is often some cross-over between the kinds of intelligence that make for good mathematicians and good musicians, the kinds of intelligence that are brought to bear on different parts of our lives get developed in different ways.
    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a book which has profoundly changed my life
    I placed my original order for Dan Goleman's book "Emotional Intelligence" about one month before it's release in 1995 after reading the Time magazine cover story "What is Your E.Q.?"At the time I was going through a very difficult divorce, and I was asking myself the question "What did I do to deserve this terrible mess?"I was a 37 year old medical internist then who, in 7th grade, modeled my emotional style after Mr. Spock (from Star Trek) to avoid emotional issues I faced then.I accepted the messages from my parents and teachers who taught me that if I earned good grades, went to college, received an undergraduate and hopefully a graduate degree, then I shall expect to become happy & successful in life.Well, I DID that. I got the T-shirt.I graduated from high school as class valedictorian, winning the science award, I was awarded by my classmates "most likely to succeed", and I won a very handsome scholarship which paid all my undergraduate tuition for 4 years and offered me a summer job.In college I won more scholarships and graduated phi beta kappa in the top 3% of my class.In medical school & residency I did well, but this was more difficult for me as I had to learn to deal with many emotionally and socially challenging issues I was poorly prepared to deal with, but I got through them, but initially was not very adept at dealing with them.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Couldn't have done it without it!
    I would recommend this to any nursing mother. I bought the book and had it memorized by the time my daughter came into this world. I had a lot of questions, and it always had the answers. I never had to go digging around for another book because it didn't have what was looking for.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST Nursing Book Out There!!
    I received this book as a gift and it has been beside my bed for 6 months (ever since my daughter was born).It is great as a reference to look up answers to quick questions or concerns.I would also recommend reading this book from start to finish before baby arrives... I wish I had.I cannot say enough good things about Kathleen Huggins and her book!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Actual useful advice!
    This book was by far the most useful nursing book I read (the others were the Sears book, the LLL book, and BF made simple).When I had a specific problem, this book actually gave a list of different things to do to try to resolve the problem - exactly what I wanted!-and there's always an accompanying discussion if you want know more.I would say this book is also the most clinical of the books, and I consider that a good thing.I (and I think most people who bother to buy a nursing book) know BF is a good choice before buying these books.I don't need a hard sell.This book simply lays out the facts in an easy to understand way.Highly recommended. ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Crazy
    I am going to be very opinionated here, but just to make the point to you of what it is like.I could not stand this book.I thought the ideas were LOONEY!They recomend that when you child has a tantrum, you join them to help them understand that you understand, even in front of others.Ha!No thanks.I do love my kids, but I also would like them to learn what is correct behavior in front of others.They do have to grow up eventually!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
    Having really enjoyed Happiest Baby on the Block, I thought this book would be helpful too. I was so turned off by it, I couldn't even finish reading. Dr. Karp is pushing evolution in explaining why toddlers behave the way the do. I just couldn't take it anymore.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Background on behavior!
    I really found this to be interesting on how our children develop and would recommend this book.It helped me understand what my little toddler is going through. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Read the book before you review it
    To those who think this book recommends ignorning a hungry child just because he ate 2 hours ago rather than the prescribed 3, I suggest you read the book a little more carefully. The feeding schedule is just a guideline, and the book does emphasize (in several places) that when your child is hungry, food should never be denied, hunger cues should never be ignored. Parents: read the book, then make up your mind on whether or not this technique is one you want to adopt. If you haven't read the book, keep your opinions to yourself. No one cares to know what you learned after doing a google search on the author. If the information in the book makes sense to you, and your pediatrician doesn't disagree, does it really matter in what subject the author earned his master's degree?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Don't knock it until you've READ it.
    This book is about setting boundaries for your child at a young age.I read the book in one sitting because it was fascinating and the next night after following the advice, my son slept for 9 hours (he was 4 months old).He hasconsitently been a very well behaved, happy, and well adjusted child.A routine, established boundaries, and yes... even discipline gives your child confidence (mommy actually knows what's up!!).I've met moms who thought babywise was "terrible" and "cruel", but interstingly enough not a single one of them had actually read the book... and guess what??The same babies that decided their own schedules turned into toddlers and children that ran the household.If you don't teach your kids the rules and boundaries, they will learn them the hard way; by testing you....
    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book!
    I love this book!My children are 17 months apart and I used Baby Wise for both of them.They were and are very happy confident children.They were not clingy because the schedule was consistent and they new what to expect.I was better at knowing their needs because of the schedule.I have always received compliments on their behavior and they are now Child Wise.:)I highly recommend this book!! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money!
    I bought this book when expecting my first.It took what was completely overwhelming and helped me sort through what I HAD to have, could use but not necessary and was a waste of money.I loved that it incorporates feedback from parents as well as the expert ratings and such.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The best book you can buy when pregnant!
    I don't know what I would have done without this book.It completely made the overwhelming task of registering so much easier.It tells you all about every baby product you can imagine and rates it with an A, B, C, etc.It breaks out products by type and then by brand.It is absolutely a must have and I recommend it to anyone expecting their first child.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great resource for first time parents
    I am adopting an infant and had no idea where to start when it came to strollers and car seats and carriers.This is a great, down to earth guide to help get your head around what you really need to purchase and things to consider when buying.For example, I never thought about the fact that strollers are designed for women who are 5'4".I am considerably taller than that and now know to make sure I find a stroller with a higher handle. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not What I Expected as Advertised
    I ordered this book after reading the rave reviews and the who's who of public school using this format.Nowhere is it advertised or even mentioned that this is a Christian book, espousing Christian dogma and assumptions.I'm surprised this is acceptable for use by Government funded public schools.Furthermore, there is a lot of non-scientific rhetoric in the book that eschews logical debate and exposition.I'm very disappointed and consider this to be false advertising.

Since then I have recommended it to many people.Anything that can help mom stay calm and sane when dealing with challenging behaviors is a real winner in my book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Help
    I highly recommend this book to any struggling parents out there. It is an easy and quick read (which I never find anything a quick read). I think I read the whole book in about 4 hours.It is chock full of advice on everything from play to sleep routines and everything in between. I have started using the adivce she offers and have already seen a change in my 2 toddlers, 3 and 21 months, as well as the whole atmosphere of the house and I have had the book for about 2 weeks. A must read!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Discipline Tips That Work For Us
    "SUPERNANNY" has discipline guidance relative to a spectrum of ages, infant through elementary school age and offers a variety of specific interventions of how to get better behavior from a child. I found Jo's advice to be easy to understand and I agree with the majority of suggested interventions especially on getting your child to sleep in his own bed at night.This book emphasizes 3 main areas to focus on: Putting an immediate stop to the undesirable or dangerous behavior in the heat of the moment (like whining, backtalk, hitting, tantrums and not listening)...Continuing to use "positive" discipline (outside the heat of the moment) by noticing and encouraging the good behaviors (like cleaning up, healthy eating, uses manners, sharing, and following a bedtime routine) and...lastly "Supernanny" stresses the importance and positive effects of adults prioritizing daily one-on-one time with each child that serves to strengthen the relationship between parent and child therby getting more cooperation from the child just because he knows he is important and understood.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great resource

What would be great to have as an addition would be some child psychologist's evaluation of her suggestions. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A lot of userful advice
    We turn to a lot of books for helping in raising our daughter (now 2 and a half) and the various issues we face."What to Expect the Toddler Years" is among our top three, along with Penelope Leach's "Your Baby & Child" and the American Academedy of Pediatrics's "Caring for your Baby and Child".The advice of the three is quite consistent (including on such "hot button issues" as when to wean), but this What to Expect Book provides the greatest help on day-to-day stuff.The philosophy is consistently respectful of the child, and the book is full of useful advice.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
    I enjoyed the first two books in this series so much that I did not even look at the reviews listed here before putting it on my birthday wish list. Now I wish I had. I guess I would call what I do "attachment parenting" and I have not yet decided when to cut my son from the breast -- but unless he insists it won't be his first birthday. When I read the section on breastfeeding I literally threw the book across the room. It is not just biased, it is flat out wrong. I happen to know a lot about breastfeeding and so I suppose I could just ignore them on this issue -- but with it being so wrong I wonder what else they got wrong; things about which I am not knowledgeable.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Eh, it was okay, but...
    The first two entries into this library were great, but this book did not live up to my expectations.Some of the advice given was outdated, and sometimes just plain wrong.I have used it a bit, and I do read the monthly chapters as my child ages, but I would not use it as my primary source of information, and certainly not as my sole source of information. ...
