NASHVILLE, TN /Send2Press Newswire/ — Parents fighting the constant battle to get their children to eat, sleep and behave will breathe a sigh of relief with the release of Taming Your Family Zoo: Six Weeks to Raising a Well-Mannered Child (Revell, May 2005), by Donna Jones. In just six weeks, Donna teaches parents how to raise well-mannered children through the powerful tools of Rehearsing, Reminding, Reinforcing, and Reflecting.

After the launch of ABC’s hit “The Supernanny” (a reality show dedicated to helping stressed-out parents of bratty kids by providing them with their own personal “supernanny”), the country began to recognize that the world is full of ill-mannered, misguided children…children being raised by parents of all types – overly permissive, overly strict, inconsistent, absent, and often ineffective. Unfortunately many parents simply don’t have the right practices in place when it comes to raising well-behaved children.

“…if you are like most parents, I’ll bet there’s been a time or two when you’ve wondered, Whose child is this, anyway? A moment of exasperation, perhaps, or a moment of embarrassment or disbelief. A moment when you were certain you were doing things all wrong as a parent. I’ve been there. We’ve all been there. Yet there is hope!” writes Jones. “The child that baffles you now can amaze you later – if you are prepared to guide that child armed with wisdom and knowledge.”

Chapter topics include:

* How to Raise a Brat

* Manners Made Easy: No Nagging Required

* Meeting and Greeting Requires More than a Grunt

* Table Manners: It’s Feeding Time at the Zoo

* and others…

Jones ends the book with a chapter featuring questions and answers from everyday parents on a variety of issues. By emphasizing essential family principles such as love and respect, addressing a variety of temperament issues, and offering a six-week training manual, Taming Your Family Zoo sets parents on the road to success in raising their own little angels–no supernanny required!
