Behavioural expert Charlie Taylor has the answers in this practical handbook which is full of simple, effective techniques for improving your child's behaviour.

Charlie Taylor’s straight-talking, no-nonsense approach guides you away from knee-jerk parenting towards a more proactive and positive relationship with your child. With particular emphasis on the power of praise – the basis of his acclaimed 6:1 strategy and planning in advance for behaviour hotspots, every parent can break the miserable pattern of constant confrontation and repetitive nagging.

With the insights and methods of Divas and Dictators, including a handy Troubleshooter’s Guide, every household with young children can quickly transform from havoc to harmony.
