"A few books fall into the Great Work category. This is one of them. This book is a beacon of insight and guidance for parents in the most challenging of parenting circumstances. Having recommended Love and Logic® to many patients for the last decade, I am delighted to see this further growth and development of the basic Love and Logic® principles. It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend this book to my colleagues and all parents of children with chronic medical conditions."  - Frazier H. King, MD. Board Certified Family Practitioner

How to Gain Your Child's Cooperation With Self-Care, Medication & Just About Everything Else By Lisa C. Greene

Does your child need to take medication? Are you worn out from fighting and arguing about it? We all know what happens when we say, “Here, take this pill!”
Whether your child is taking a one-time course of antibiotics for an ear infection or needs to take medications routinely, kids of all ages from toddlers to teens will be more willing to take their medication and do medical treatments when you use the tools in this book. The tools you discover will also help you to gain cooperation with just about anything else, too, including chores, self-care (like brushing teeth, bathing, getting dressed), homework, and more.
