It's Not Fair, Jeremy Spencer's Parents Let Him Stay up All Night!

A Guide to the Tougher Parts of Parenting

Farrar, Straus and Giroux



Trade Paperback

Anthony Wolf's groundbreaking book focuses on the most difficult challenges of parenting post-infant to pre-teen children—setting limits and making demands. Dr. Wolf covers all the class parenting problem areas: family disputes, including who's in charge (Mom or Dad), sibling fights, and divorce; day-to-day issues such as bedtime, grumpiness, and public tantrums; and problems that might not be problems after all, like aggression, lying, and spoiling. Positive, loving, and, above all, effective, this guide offers parents what they want most: more time to enjoy their children.
