i read 'raising happy children' by jan parker and jan stimpson. i found it really good, you don't have to follow it to the letter, but it has good ideas and just reading books like that can make you stop and think about things.

I haven't read the book but if it is connected to the BBC three series then I do enjoy watching that. I'm sure that there will be loads of books available on this issue. If you go to somewhere like Waterstones you could preview a few before you decide to buy. Good luck with DD. How old is she?

Yes it is connected to the series, I only watched one of the episodes but thought it was very good. She is 6.5 and giving me major grief at bed time, I am hoping it will take less that 2.5 hours to put her to bed tonight

I have the book but havent really read musch yet. I like tanyas approach to discipline because its not unrealistically harsh on the child or the parent. I really don't like methods that imho are traunatic for parent or child (even if they do work). She seems to gt results without losing her empathy and kindness towards the child.

Although I haven't read much of the book yet I'm impressed your doctor recommended it and I would definatley recommend her approach.

ps/ she also did the recent bbc series house of tiny tearaways I think...
