An easy to implement guide to raising your children!
I bought this book when my son was 18 months and my daughter was almost 3 years old. We were going through the terrible two's for 2 children at the same time. My husband had a new job and our schedules at the time where hardly overlapping so that we were both home with the kids at the same time. We needed help and we needed it now! Supernanny was a blessing. She keeps it simple in her book and the book is set up so you can skip right to the chapter that you need when you need it or read it cover to cover. She covers everything we needed from potty training to sleeping through the night, and how to organize your day and still allow for some flexibility. She will take you through the steps from the time your kids wake up to the time they go to bed. And best of all she even covers getting in quality time with your spouse. If you want peace of mind and want it now, GET THIS BOOK and start implementing it today.Read full review

THIS BOOK IS AWESOME..I Have watched the television show super-nanny since it has aired..This book gives so much more on the insight of raising children and the daily chore it can sometimes feel like..I personally have learned a few techniques that i have been able to use with my children..I think any mom would have a great insight by reading this book..Not only will it help you but it will encourage you..I purchased this book for a great price and could not believe it was so full of information that actually worked..

Loved It ! ! !
As simple and easy to follow as her TV show, this book helps explain why toddlers (and beyond) act the way that they do. No, they are purposely trying to make you late to work every day, for example, my three year old is excited about trying to button his own shirt. I have started to leave more time for these "little things" in the mornings. I let my 5 & 3 yr olds put their own clothes on in the morning and slip their shoes on. I realized I'd held my 5 yr old back by dressing him myself every morning because I could do it faster, often while he was still asleep. I also have made House Rules that we all agreed upon (the kids, my husband, and me) and we printed them out (along with clip art next to each rule to let my pre-readers memorize the picture to go with the rule. Now I just tell them each morning to tell me the 6 rules of the day, and they start in, "No climbing on the cabinets or furniture." Basically, she just thought me through this book what I realistically could expect of my children, and how to push them to do their able best, as well as to understand when I am expecting too much from my toddlers. Thank you.Read full review

Great information. Gives one a base to develop your own system.
Jo Frost is an inspiration. When the family unit is under threat, and many parents have underlying problems themselves, Jo, in simply ways gives the parent effective tool to raise their child. Children can be your worst nightmare, but also the greatest and most positive thing a person can do. With simple techniques, and a mature, calm attitude, Jo's influence must be phenomenal in today's world. This book is no exceptioion. No book can do everything, as anything can happen, but reading Jo's book's gives the 'methods' for different behavior, but then we seem to create our own methods, using Jo's as a base. We sort of take into consideration all she has taught, and applied that in other ways, and our little girl is very happy, and well behaved.

Supernanny is SO HELPFUL
There's no question that parenting is sometimes a very hard job. Rewarding, absolutely, but also challenging. Jo Frost is a helpful voice of calm through the storms of parenting... Supernanny is well written, beautifully designed, and extraordinarily helpful.
