Editorial Reviews

Review

Parents who read this book will feel as if Don and Debra are accurately and almost magically reading their and their children's minds and hearts. Creative, effective interventions flow naturally from this spot-on understanding of parents' and children's inner thoughts, feelings, wishes, and behavioral choices. WHO'S THE BOSS? gives parents innovative tools for asserting control in the family and raising happy, responsible, resilient, and compassionate children.
 
 -Richard Steinberg, Ph.D., Diplomate, Clinical Psychology, American Board of Professional Psychology

From the Back Cover

 
This book presents a concise and effective method of turning things around to create an even closer relationship with your child and set limits in a way that helps all family members.
 
The program outlined is the result of over thirty-five years of study, teaching and clinical practice. Hundreds of families with three to ten-year-old children have successfully used the Win-Win Way to make a shift. Parents typically report a dramatic improvement in their children's behavior after a few weeks time.
 
Even though you will benefit greatly as a parent, it won't be at your kids' expense. With this approach, your child can wind up being happier, more loving, have a higher self-esteem and feel less guilty and anxious. Best of all, you can have more fun together and resign, most of the time, from that role of "bad cop." 
If you buy a new print edition of this book (or purchased one in the past), you can buy the Kindle edition for only $1.99 (Save 72%). Print edition purchase must be sold by Amazon. Learn more.

In this era of over indulged children, this book is an essential guide for parents who want to reclaim their parental authority in a positive and effective way. I appreciate the amount of wisdom that is packed into this book by two master family therapists. The "Win-Win Way" provides easy to use tools for increasing family closeness and happiness, while reducing negative emotions. I recommend this book to parents, therapists, and anyone working with children. This book exceeded my expectations!

This book has really helped our household. Not only did we see improvement in our child's behavior, it also gave us the tools to remain calm and in control. The techniques are very straightforward and the book can be read in a night or two, which was incredibly helpful.

We are pleased to heartily recommend "Who's the Boss," A book by Don and Debra MacMannis, who worked with our family to improve family chemistry, and dynamics. Dr MacMannis' approach, which draws heavily on common sense, strives to create Win-Win situations benefiting all. Not only did the books approach appeal to us intellectually, but in just a couple of weeks, we noticed a a big positive change in family dynamics leaving us all happier and more optimistic. "Who's the Boss" not only gave us a better tool kit for dealing with family issues, it gave us a road map for working through problems and improving family chemistry. Thank you!
