Well written, and very easy to listen to!

Great advisement and makes so much sense. I was able to finish it in about a week during my commute to work and back. It was quite engaging and practical. Thanks!

Very Helpful

Even if you know what to do, you usually have some doubt as to if what you are doing is correct, or if you should make even the smallest alteration. This book is just as great for those that don't know what to do, as it is for those that already use discipline and just wanting confirmation that they are applying it correctly.

Parent Investment

Please invest in your child by taking the time to read/listen this book. As the father of a 2.5 year old rambunctious son, I needed what this book had to say.

EVERY Parent Needs This Book!

Do you really want what's best for your child? It's a confusing world out there these days with all of the new age studies "proving" (emphasis on the quotes) new methods of parenting. Help yourself get unconfused by relying on thousands of years of wisdom of biblical based parenting.

Discipline is too often confused with harshness or oppression. Discipline is love and kids do better with it than they ever will without it. This book tells you simply the value of discipline and how to successfully implement it.

Dobson's wisdom stands the test of time.

After raising three wonderful kids on the principles of the original Dare to Discipline, I read this latest version from Dr. Dobson. His wisdom inspires me to recommend this book for my daughter to read for my grandson and her. A must read for ALL parents!
