"My 2yo has started crying a LOT the past few days. Over every little thing. Nothing is different physically or environmentally that I can tell. He already has his 2yo molars, too.. He's just been crying about everything that he doesn't like, with some pretty good tantrums thrown in the mix of the average crying. I tried holding him in timeout (he's never stayed in time out on his own so far), but he screamed and threw a serious tantrum the whole time.. which wouldn't be a problem for me except that I have to take care of the other kids, too! I tried holding him in our time-out spot until he was done with the tantrum so I could praise him for being happy, etc., but after 40 minutes of continuous screaming, my baby was also crying, needing to be fed, and the other young kids had destroyed the basement. At that point I just took him to his bed to finish his crying fit. So I'm thinking the holding in time out option might not work for us. Yesterday and today I've started just taking him to his room when he starts having a breaking down crying fit. What would you suggest? Do you think I should just take him to his room every time he cries? Or should I try
"I was wondering….what do you do about name calling, or when children say bad words? My children say crap, stupid, dumb, etc… No matter how many times I tell them to stop, they don’t. So would you have them do a chore everytime they named called, or said a bad word? or Would you do something different?"
Name calling is obviously not appropriate because it destroys the feeling in the home and encourages contention and selfishness. There are a couple of ways I handle this sort of thing.
Seeing James and Hannah so much improved and obviously happier makes it all worth it. We love them! Well done James! Well done Hannah! ~Nicholeen

The first page of Parenting A House United says:
"Is your home in crisis? Do your children never do what they are told? Do you find yourself completely overwhelmed and hating to interact with your children? Do your children treat you with disrespect and cause contention at home? Are you out of control of your emotions as a parent too? If any of these descriptions sound like your house, then you might be in crisis and you will definitely benefit from reading this book. It is written for you.
This book is also written for people who don't want to ever have a home like I have described above and for parents who want to have an effectively communicating family right from the very beginning of parenthood."
If you consider yourself or your family in a crisis situation where you need a few quick tools to start changing things immediately at home then this post is for you. Hundreds of people have bought the book at this point and some need to start implementing things before they have even read the whole book. Below are a few key chapters to read immediately to start making some useful changes before diving in and reading the whole book.

I have told many people the pre-sold books would start shipping today. I went to pick them up from the printer today and couldn't bring them home because there was a problem with the printing. The printer told me they will be ready to pick up Monday. Sorry for the delay.
Since I don't actually have the books yet I am continuing the pre-sale for a few more days. I hope this helps a few people get books for cheaper. Thank you for your patience.
