Not too long ago I read and reviewed, You’re Not the Boss of Me by Betsy Brown Braun. I was so impressed by the book that as soon as I finished it I started the author’s earlier book, Just Tell Me What to Say: Sensible Tips and Scripts for Perplexed Parents. I’m happy to say I loved this book just as much…

Sometimes parents want to understand why kids do what they do. Sometimes we just want someone to say: When the kids whine, say this. When they throw food, say that. That handy parent cheat sheet is now in print. Betsy Brown Braun’s new book, Just Tell Me What to Say: Sensible Tips and Scripts for Perplexed Parents, lays out instructions on how to deal with everyday crises…

Stars ***** This. Book. Was. Awesome. Those four words could be the review right there. I’ve read lots of parenting books and I’ve seen some specialize in toddlers, some in preschoolers and some in elementary kids but none for ages 2-6….what makes this book different is that it gives you specific scripts to say to your children. I HIGHLY recommend this book for parents…

Just Tell Me What to Say: Sensible Tips and Scripts for Perplexed Parents by Betsy Brown Braun. This book has it all and it’s wonderful. And extremely HELPFUL. Especially when you are out of sorts by your child’s behaviors and inevitable questions. And what I loved most about the book is that it’s down to earth and humours, yet serious. It’s a ‘must read’ for all parents in my opinion.

Thankfully, I discovered Betsy Brown Braun’s, Just Tell Me What To Say … Betsy’s book is well organized and straight forward. I have used it often. Every parent needs a few tips sometimes.

what also makes this book different is that it gives you specific scripts to say to your children. You may need to customize some of them of course but for the most part, they can be said as is.
Since this was an ARC, I can’t quote the book so here is a rundown on the chapter on manners and social graces…. first there is a little introductory information, then some tips and scripts for encouraging your child’s use of manners, then an info section on “Please, Thank You, Excuse Me, and Other Social Graces,” and tips and scripts for eliciting please from your child, info on thank you, tips and scripts in the event of noncompliance, info on burps and farts, interrupting, greetings and farewells and kisses and hugs. Then tips and scripts for kisses and hugs, info on I’m Sorry, tips and scripts for I’m sorry, info on telephone manners, tips and scripts for the telephone, info on dealing with rudeness in public, tips and scripts for dealing with embarrassing exclamations from your child in public, info on boogers and nose picking, and tips and scripts for dealing with nose picking.
I HIGHLY recommend this book for parents with kids ages 2-6.
