Parents can sometimes feel overwhelmed and frustrated when attempting to successfully provide loving, structured discipline to their children when they misbehave. At such times, parents may benefit from the sound advice offered in a well-written book that provides helpful strategies regarding how to discipline children in ways that do not include spanking. Such a book can educate parents in ways to communicate effectively with their children when managing poor behavior. It can also provide important strategies on setting appropriate limits with children, providing clear and consistent directives, and on motivating their children toward positive behavior patterns. A book on this topic may also increase parental confidence in their own abilities to address difficult child behaviors in an effective manner.
I wasn't crazy about the narration. the voice was lulling, so it put me to sleep half of the time. The book itself had some interesting view points that, as a mother of 4 (pulling my hair out and yelling all the time), i had never thought of in the way the author describes.
