This book is a refreshing change from the piles I’ve read about my kids’ behaviors. Naumburg focuses on what we can do to help ourselves! She lays out in plain language how to manage your own emotions and self so that you can better deal with your kids when they are pushing your buttons. The concepts are universal and I will be recommending this book to everyone.
