    In response to the op, I've read it. I hated all of it. Except for the last page which I think it blank.

    We implemented a bedtime routine but not because of SOS.

    Yes, I think people get so upset about this book simply because a lot of first time parents who are feeling pretty apprehensive about looking after a baby fullstop can read tripe like what has been posted above (thanks Big Red V) and think it is actually correct, and then put their babies through absolutely awful routines based on behaviour babies simply don't have the capability to comprehend, let alone orchestrate!!

    It's not only tripe, it's potentially dangerous tripe. Thank goodness I'd already had a child when I read it, and pretty much knew the contents, and read it from curiosity, didn't stop my jaw dropping though...

    I've read it. I hated all of it.
    Except for the last page which I think is blank.
    Brilliant post!

    I haven't read it, but just wanted to say that I really object to teaching parents to distrust their children.
    My mum doesn't trust me and it damaged our relationship. She still does it, not long ago she told me how selfish I am, and how manipulative I was as a kid (I'm not, and I wasn't ). She told me my DD was manipulating us into getting out of bed by crying and it's ok to ignore her. My DD sleeps 12 hours a night and goes down for her naps with absolutely no fuss because she knows we're right near by if she needs us (I pointed that out and she laughed it off).
    There is a lot of love between us, but that distrust still hurts
    If people are leaving that type of thing out of the advice they take from the book, and just use the routines as a guide then I don't see the harm if it works for them

    This might stir up some controversy to th lovers but one of the mothers at my mums group knows th personally and claimed that she never followed these routines with her own boys and apparently they are out of control, i found it very amusing if this is true... btw i do have the book and read it twice over during pregnancy and when bubs arrived hoping it would help my bub with her sleep, but ive come to realize all babies are different and she is too extreme for my liking

    I got given this book before I had my baby and I skimmed through it and realised it wasn't for me. I didn't see the bits about vomiting but I find it absolutely disgusting that someone would even suggest a baby would do it on purpose. This thread has inspired me to throw away my copy.

    Better yet, burn it.

    As much as I am not a TH fan, I expect VP will understandably ask for this thread to be closed if it turns into a Tizzie bashing one.

    I'd be interested in a spin off to know if anyone followed her "advice" in relation to car restraints and/or vomiting/pooing "on demand". But likely not worth it as those who have done so are not likely to admit it!

    So now you can only give out parenting advice if you have a child psych degree!? I do find the irony of the "she isn't qualified to give out advice" line quite amusing since this statement is made by those that are part of an online parenting forum who are giving and receiving an array of 'unqualified' advice on a daily basis.

    I also don't think anyone has disputed that TH has said some questionable things, but I am yet to meet another parent where my philosophies are 100% in line with their's, even if I share similar values there are still always things that I would choose to do differently and I am sure that people feel the same way about how I choose to parent, but I'm not offended by it. The same goes for parenting authors, there is never one who's ideals I 100% identify with so I just discard what I don't need. If TH truly believes in ALL her philosophies then that is her prerogative to write about what she wishes, just as it is your prerogative to write here about what you wish and parent how you choose.
