5.0 out of 5 stars A short book...long on wisdom 14 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on
I was not sure what age span was addressed in this new little book on discipline, but because I am an avid Brazelton fan, I bought it anyway. Although, there is quite a bit of general discipline philosophy and information in the book, I feel the majority of it is geared to parents and teachers of 1-6 year olds. Sometimes the text refers to "older children"; but, from the advice that is given on topics like stealing and lying, I would say older children means ages 7-10. I do think all the information makes good sense and is in keeping with the many other Brazelton books. I particularly like the section of the book that explains a variety of discipline by one. The authors include pros and cons on each one-- which I found unique and helpful. The last part of the book gives solutions to some common misbehaviors like biting, tantrums, sibling fights, foul language, and lying. I found this section convenient to quickly look up a particular problem--where the authors offer concise, easy to understand information on the why's and what to do's with a number of troublesome behaviors. If you have a 2, 3, 4, or 5 year old, I would like to also highly recommend another "little book" with a similar philosophy for parents and teachers of preschoolers called "The Pocket Parent" --It's an A-Z quick-read compendium addressing many more hot-button issues (such as morning crazies, the gimmes, "I hate you's", not listening, and interrupting.) This book is a practical "hands-on" companion to "Discipline: The Brazelton Way". Additionally, "The Pocket Parent" offers a good dose of comforting humor as well as helpful, short, real-life anecdotes that clearly demonstrate many of the suggested positive discipline techniques in both books. Both books are reasonably priced and a worthwhile addition to your personal or school reference library...always ready to restore your sanity at a moment's notice--especi! ally whe n you feel you're just about to lose your mind!

5.0 out of 5 stars little book that gives big help! 7 Feb 2003
By mamareadssomuch - Published on
I highly recommend this book to parents of toddlers and preschoolers who need a little discipline. We have a 3.5yr old who has recently started pushing the limits and we didn't know how to react and make him not talk back, etc. Already the touchpoints given in this book have helped in our house!
For parents wanting quick advice that works, this book is a keeper!

5.0 out of 5 stars You Can't Go Wrong with Brazelton 25 Mar 2003
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brazelton makes it easier to be a parent, especially on some of the tougher areas of the job. He lays out clearcut ways to improve behavior (your child's and your own!) and strengthen the relationship between parent and child. It's not rocket science, just good, practical advice to review when the going gets tough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great when hitting a discipline rut! 22 Sep 2004
By Laurel Love - Published on
I read the book as soon as I got it home. We were having discipline problems with out almost 4 year old and with a new sibling in the mix we didn't want to make drastic changes again in his life. I often read the book when I'm frustrated by my childrens actions and it helps me to understand their way of thinking and how to make the correct discipline choices to fit the exact situation. Thanks Berry Brazelton!
