This should be it, it's not password protected though I think you need a Google logon, you can just use whatever email address though. A condensed version of the book plus a fridge sized version. FWIW I'm not trying to circumvent sales of the book, I think it is a really good book and the crib sheet is best read in conjunction with the book. But the truth is who has the time to read a parenting manual when you are in a situation in which you require one?

Hope it's useful anyway.

That is fantastic. Have only got half way through the book.

I reallly like the principles behind HTH, but find it hard to adapt it to my 5 yr old and 1 yr old.

ANy tips? Or is that another thread?!

Brilliant, thanks!

I borrowed the book from the library weeks ago and so far it is still lying in a drawer untouched......

Is there a book to help with getting dh to listen? I frequently have this problem.

'ANy tips? Or is that another thread?!'

Erm, wine?! I'm not sure I'm in a position to give any tips given that I have spent the day getting progressively cross with my four year old's constant whinging!

I think you gave me an idea, maybe I could start a thread about dh not listening (if noone has done one already)grin

Thank you. I read the book ages ago, and felt that it did help. I slipped back into my natural authoritarian style of 'because I said so!' parenting quite quickly though. I recently found a piece of paper on which I'd summarised some of the chapters; very similar to this sheet. It's good to have it all there so I'll print it off and refer to it. smile

Thank you wine

Brilliant - thank you. I was just thinking today that I need to re-read the book becuase I've been shouting at DS lately. The crib sheet is going up in the kitchen tonight.
