    I'll order this tonight ✌️

    Its by Louise Porter and is now unfortunately quite difficult to buy. Amazon have it - for about $180!! I think its out of print perhaps so all that's left are second hand copies at a premium.

    The good news is that a lot of council libraries have it. I know that my local library has a few copies (usually heavily reserved). So I'd try hunting it down at the library as your best bet.

    It's now been re-named Parental Guidance Recommended and you can order it from this link if you can't get either of them at your library very easily. I have to say, I know that reading the blurb you might think 'what?' because it says parenting without rewards or punishments...but she does talk about discipline, she's not anti discipline at all.

    I don't know if it's just a coincidence or some divine intervention but I was reading this thread last night and when the book by Louise Porter was mentioned I thought I seen that name somewhere and I had received an email yesterday about her giving a talk at a local child care centre in Feb. Think I might book in.

    I would. I didn't get the 'threenager' at all. The terrible two's were so rough, but I read this book once my oldest turned three and nothing was improving and the house was so much calmer.

    We're getting there I think she just needs sleep on some days and some extra attention on some days. I've been praising all the good and not acknowledging the silly little things she wants noticed. I think I'm getting somewhere. Is it normal that the new baby is EASY and the toddler is the challenging one? I so thought it would be the other way around.

    Anyway I think I'm getting the hang of it all and my patience is building slowly. What a learning experience I tell you.
