    Like millions of other modern moms, I tried to change them by yelling and nagging. This, of course, only made their behavior worse. After one especially trying day, I stomped off to my home office. Too exhausted to work, I sat at my desk and stared at a dusty shelf of books. And there I saw it: an old copy of "The Prince."

    All I can say is, it's got a lot more potential suggestions for parenting than Gorin No Sho or The Art of War. :) And it's a free download at both www.gutenberg.org *and* www.librivox.org!

    Thanks for posting. Macchiavelli's instructions should never be underestimated. And I wouldn't discredit Clausewitz or Sun Tzu either. There are some unchanging principles in love, war and parenting... ;)
