"A great book. Mischievous, challenging, honest, pulls no punches and is backed up with references. Covers so many areas of parenting concerns I would recommend it as a read for any stage as Carlos reminds us what is natural and sometimes to reset our expectations to 'normal'."
"RESPECT. That would summarise this book. The concept of respect to your baby or child as another human being. Sounds simple and obvious but will change the way you do or say things to your child. Full of common sense like all his books."
"I've read this book over and over for the different perspective it brings to child behaviour. I often replay in my head some of the wisdom from this book when deciding how to handle a new situation with my children. A really lovely, gentle but funny book and a very pleasant but thought provoking read."
"Anyone who loved My Child Won't Eat will love this book."
"Has been great for our parenting ..........and marriage. The humour of the book is wonderful as well as the clear science it shares to explain so many parenting worries. I would say a must read!"
