Book Reviews

"Bedtime, sibling arguments, homework, and other eyes in the hurricane of family conflict receive the precise attention of clinical psychologist and educator Howard N. Sloane in his practical and elaborate regimen for geting kids 3 to 13 years old to do what you tell them to do."

—Irene Wood, CHADDER

"Author Howard Sloane's advice is refreshingly direct and matter of fact. . . The book should be a useful addition to any family library. Teachers and day care workers will also find it interesting and helpful."

—Dorothy Cutrell, The Provident Bookfinder
