About the Book
Most parents feel frustrated with their children from time to time, but killer whaletrainer-in-training Amy Sheldrake has a unique perspective. She marvels at thecomplex behaviors her superiors are able to coax out of these enormous beasts,while she and her husband struggle to make their beloved - and much smaller - son Joshobey what seem like the simplest rules.What does training killer whales have to do with raising children? As this engrossing andunique parenting fable shows, more than you'd think. In their New York Times bestseller WhaleDone, Ken Blanchard and his coauthors - including two veteran marine mammal trainers -showed how positive training concepts used at places like SeaWorld could be adapted tothe workplace. In this new book they apply these same principles to parenting.
