HAD TO BUY THE BOOK!!
After having watched the clip, I couldn't help but buy the book immediately. My mother was a yeller and I vowed to never be the same. However, after "arguing" and "debating" with my strong willed 4 year old, it seems to be the only solution. Now, I know there is a "real" solution! Thanks Sarah Chana

Thanks for the Reassurance
I have been using this method for years and usually it works well. (My kids think I'm quite reasonable, most of the time!)However, I have occasionally come under critism from other parents for "ignoring" or "neglecting" my children by walking away from their arguments. Thank you for reassuring me that I'm on the right track!
