“There is so much useful information in this book. By page four I started taking notes, and I didn’t stop there. I photocopied Emma’s lists and put them up on the fridge for my four children to look at. I underlined passages and shared them with other parents. If everyone read this book and taught their children her very kind and balanced approach to parenting, I think the world would be a finer place." (Maria T. Lennon Confessions of a So-Called Middle Child)
"As parents you get inundated with conflicting information about raising kids which often makes you feel as if you're doing everything wrong. Keep Calm and Parent On provides common sense advice that is enormously reassuring because it actually works!” (Lucy and Larry Page co-founder of Google)
“Emma Jenner provides mothers and fathers with the perfect antidote to the culture of guilt that surrounds American parenting. Every page of this book is filled with practical advice. Her wisdom about the nature of children will strengthen your trust in your own parenting instincts—and we all need that.” (Michael Thompson, PhD author of Raising Cain)

I'm giving this book two stars because I do like the checklist approach to figuring out what is causing behavioral issues with your child. I also think her approach to discipline is pretty solid, but you can get the same advice pretty much anywhere else. Overall, I don't recommend this book.
This book is aimed at parents of babies and very young children, but there is still good information for parents of older children. I cringed at the recognition of mistakes we made when the kids were little, but I also resolved to make changes now that will preserve the sanity of our household and help our children to develop into more responsible young adults.
The author has had the experience of working with many families, and I do wish that there were more detailed stories in the book about specific family dynamics and the solutions that worked. I'm not sure that it would add any real information to what is already in the book, but stories make for good reading. (Maybe I just long for a real life Miss Piggle Wiggle!)
In sum, this book is a trove of sensible, practical advice and I highly recommend it to any parent.
"There's a scene in the comedy movie The Change-Up in which a school-aged girl is complaining to her parents that her poem did not earn top recognition. The dad (who's actually the dad's best friend stuck in the dad's body) remarks, "Your poem, which I've never seen, is much better than this other kid's, whose poem I have also never seen." The point, of course, it that absurdities of modern parenting can best be seen through the eyes of a body imposter. Or, I would argue, a nanny."
I am trying to use the ideas from this book to take a fresh look at how to have a happy home, full of teenagers who aren't fighting with each other. Trying to break lifelong bad habits isn't going to happen overnight.
I guess nannies are better known for raising little ones, not adolescents.
