My Strong-Willed Child
Both books on my bedside table... and so far the most helpful advice is how to get Mary Fowler to bring her coat with her to school. Instead of telling her to get her coat and put it on (because it's below freezing outside) asking her if she'd like to wear or carry her coat? It works! Genius!! Also worth mentioning is that strong wills are great, wonderful, important personality traits... I, as a strong-willed person, myself, (duh!) just need to change my approach.
