Even if you don't necessarily agree with his views, a very thought provoking examination of the mother-father/wife-husband relationships, toys and I especially liked his views on television. This book is worth it just to hear about why parents should not necessarily feel good about letting their kids watch "educational" programs between the ages of 2-6 (so much for Baby Einstein!).
Good common sense. It's stuff that's on the surface but unrecognizable as the source of behavioral problems. He gives good examples of how to make changes.
This is a very useful book, and read well by the author. It gives good, practical techniques for steering your kids to be useful, helpful, cooperative, and on the road to self-sufficiency. Especially enlightening was the advice on keeping an emphasis on the marriage relationship, as it serves as a model for your kids' views on marital relationships.
John Rosemund is an excellent parenting coach. I've read several of his books. His approach is common sense, no-nonsense and practical. I definitely recommend this book for all parents.
I have shied away from Rosemond because he seemed too tough, but now that my kids are older, I see the common sense in all that he says in this book. It is startling how bad TV is for us and yet we keep watching. Thanks to this book, I will definitely be cutting it off.

I just finished listening to three books on parenting; Six-Point Plan for Raising Happy, Healthy Children; Wonderful Ways to Love a Child; and ScreamFree Parenting.
While I tended to agree with this author's opinions on parenting, I found his arguments to be lacking. Most of his thoughts boiled down to opinion based upon experience. However, this is not valid evidence from a scientific perspective.
I would have preferred to have more evidence presented in the form of peer reviewed research and not solely trust the author's expertise.
As an educated woman, stay at home wife & mother I am extremely offended by this mans views of women & family. Don't waste your time or money on this book!
