Title: How to Unspoil Your Child Fast: A Speedy, Complete Guide to Contented Children and Happy Parents

Author: Richard Bromfield

My Review:

The other day, I stopped by a yard sale in my neighborhood for a moment and my son called out the window, “Mommy, make sure you get me something please…” I informed him that I did not buy anything for him and his face became wrinkled up and he said rudely,” Why didn’t you buy me something?”  I had always taken pride in the fact that I don’t buy my children every toy or treat that they ask for and I have a chore/reward system in place. I was shocked to realize in that moment that my normally appreciative son was acting like a spoiled child and I didn’t like it one bit.

How to Unspoil Your Child Fast by Richard Bromfield, PhD provides realistic and loving ways that a parent can correct spoiled behaviors before it becomes the norm. I like “self help” books to be straightforward and practical for real life and this book hit those targets. My favorite chapter was how to “Develop Real Winners” which addressed how parents should allow children to do for themselves. With the holidays approaching, I also appreciated the Chapter that empowers parents to “buy less.”

The method for How to Unspoil Your Child Fast is easy to follow and a pertinent read for any parent who is concerned that their child is spoiled or has the potential to be spoiled.
