Summary "In this wise and informative parenting guide, Elaine Rose Glickman shows readers how loving your kid enough to be the boss will result in happier, healthier, and much easier-to-be-around children! You've seen them--kids running wild through restaurants while the parents avert their gaze and order another cappuccino. You've heard them--kids telling their parents to "shut up" and "get me that." You've met them--kids who dress inappropriately and roll their eyes and never say thank you. Maybe one of those kids belongs to you. Combining incisive commentary with grounded, practical advice, Your Kid's a Brat and It's All Your Fault will have you recognizing and laughing at yourself, your fellow parents, and a culture that seems determined to turn our precious angels into not-so-precious brats. Divided into three sections--"Your Budding Brat" for toddlers and preschoolers, "Your Bratty Child" for grade-schoolers, and "Your Bratty Tween"--this book is packed with wisdom and tips culled from the trenches of child-rearing. Your Kid's a Brat and It's All Your Fault will not only help you grow adept at responding to specific misbehaviors, but will encourage and empower you to become the confident, respected parent you yearn to be"-- Provided by publisher.
