5.0 out of 5 stars Very valuable child rearing information 3 Oct 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book provides a no-nonsense approach to disciplining children while fostering the true meaning of unconditional love. These techniques are really based on common sense (the golden rule for example) and are very effective. Everyone raves at how well adjusted our 2 year old is. We started applying the basic principles in this book when she was about 1 years old. Her teachers at preschool just love to have her in their class because she is "so well behaved", full of joy and caring and empathetic towards others. I have never heard anyone say that about a 2 year old before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!! A MUST for all parents 11 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Dr Leman is right on target. It is easy reading, but not at all a light topic. All parents should read this book. I find myself wanting to give it to parents I see in the store and on the street. I tell all my friends about it and about Dr Leman. Overall, it is an excellent Christine based guide for parents.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Read This Book Once a Year 30 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
I still love the saying, Pull the rug out and let the buzzards tumble. I wanted to find an alternative to spanking my children and never realized that there was an entirely different concept of reality discipline rather than punishment. I keep trying to hand this book out to people particularly when I see people struggling with kids in public who are out of control.
