Taming Your Family Zoo: Six Weeks to Raising a Well-Mannered Child


This book by Donna Jones,  was actually given to my in-law, who is a mother of two but who often finds herself babysitting 6 children at a time (relatives and friends bring their kids over) so her home is often similar to a scene from Jurassic Park. This delightful book is recommended for anyone who has a child younger than 18. I think it will take more than 6 weeks though! Its really good the way, the book is divided into 2 parts - the first part being for the parent.



About the book 
Studies show that kids who are well mannered are more confident and successful and have better relationships.
What parent doesn't crave that for their child? In Taming Your Family Zoo, Donna Jones shows parents, teachers, and child-care providers how to raise well-mannered children and promises results in less than six weeks. From training a two-year-old to say "please" to the more knotty issue of talking with a teenage boy about his treatment of girls, Jones unfolds step-by-step techniques for teaching manners. Jones also teaches parents how to instill a love for God and for others, and encourages them to grab hold of every teachable moment they can to show their children something they can use the rest of their lives.

Taming Your Family Zoo is thoughtful, engaging, humorous, and filled with the importance of communicating love when teaching children. It seems sometimes it's almost a lost concept in today's world. She really does cover everything from, table manners to how to answer the phone. Personally, I wish everyone, with or without children, would read this book.
