I didn't realize there was a whole line of them though... I saw the toddler book at Half Priced the other day (a few weeks ago really) and thought about picking it up/looking at it. I didn't, but several nights lately I've thought back to it lol.
Well, anyways, the other day I got something in an email about their website and other books (plural) so I headed over there to look at it a min ago. Was just good timing really. Apparently there's one called The No Cry Discipline Solution... out of curiousity (partly because no cry & discipline really doesn't seem to fit together lol) I looked at it and saw this in the myths section:

Seriously, what timing... I've felt horrible for this very thing the past few days because I haven't been feeling well & Kalila's well into terrible two's and been pushing things lately.
Beyond that I've seen some good advice on there... I know its good advice because I've heard it a million times from other sources lol. Things I've heard from other mom's and stuff.
Anyone read any of these books? Opinions? I'm not planning to go out and get them (at least not yet lol) but I am curious now.
