    Love this post and love this book. I am a nanny and teacher and I love that her goal is helping children to be as independent as possible for their age and ability level. Helping a child to be independent and appropriately interdependent is equivalent to teaching them to fish rather than giving them a fish.

    The focus on clear expectations and consistency is perfect. In fact, this is the ONLY way children "get stuff". Kids to act out for a variety of reasons, but in my experience it's far more pervasive when a schedule and clear expectations are absent.

    Thanks for this wonderful guide to a happier family life!!!!
