“I can highly recommend this book to every parent. My house was a mess, I didn’t know what to do or how to do it. After reading the book I have direction, confidence and now the ability to parent strongly with great boundary setting that works so easily”.

“It is so nice to read a book about parenting, written by a parent who knows and understands all the emotions and problems we experience. The tips are easy to follow and work incredibly well. Great book, highly recommended”.
Lisa – Sydney NSW

“As a first time mum with an overactive 3 year old, I was lost. My son’s behaviour was exhausting. I was fighting with my little boy every day. After reading all the advise my home is now a much quieter and happier place and I feel like I have some parent power back. I recommend this book to every parent”.
Natasha Adams – Newcastle, NSW

“I found the book very informative and was just what I was looking for. I was having so much trouble with my children demanding so much. After reading the book and using the suggestions, especially on boundaries, I found the kids were far better behaved when they know what my expectations are. Great book”.
Marie – Maryborough, Qld

I love it, it works so easily, there are no more arguments with the kids, the rooms are quieter and the way we all speak to the kids has changed. I have recommended the book to many of our parents”
