How to Raise Kids You Want to Keep

I came across this book by accident while doing research on how to write a book proposal. I thought it was a made up book. I typed it in to Amazon and it was real! 

How to Raise Kids You Want to Keep was written by Jerry R. Day, Ed.D. This book is amazing especially if you are having a hard time getting your kids to listen to you or if you have a major problem that you don't know how to fix. This book gives you ideas for behavioral adjustments that work. He even has a special section on how to deal with a child that has ADHD. I have a child that has ADD and it works with him just fine.

He gives about 10 different techniques for various issues. Some technique works better for specific types of children and as a parent you'll know if it will work for yours. It works to modify behaviors like, finally getting them to do a chore that you've asked them to do a hundred times, temper tantrums, disrespect, stealing, or bullying. 

You take very specific steps and change a behavior one issue at a time. It may take a little while if there are a lot of areas but the main end goal is to get your child to "live under parental authority." This will make parenting a lot easier.

I haven't read each technique yet but what I've read it is truly an amazing book to help you modify bad behavior in your child.

Leave a comment if you have any questions about the book.
