This is a brilliant book. Up till now I used to describe my child as difficult and was trying to find quick solutions for problems. But this book helps you understand what goes in the little mind and what the reasons are for his behaviour. That made me look at him not as difficult but as a little being that needs help learning to express himself. I can tell you I haven't even finished the book yet but it already pays off in my son's behaviour. Some ideas like sleeping together are not for me but the general message of understanding and loving really does help with discipline. Highly recommended for every lost parent.

This book is a wonderful help for anyone who is trying to raise their child gently but firmly, in an attachment parenting way. I loved it, it made me reevaluate a whole host of things and also helped me to grieve my own upbringing. Can't recommend it more highly!

still reading this but so far so good, it doesn't give you exact tactics but it helps with understanding why behaviour as is. i guess every child is different so they cant say what to do exactly. but nice manual to have

a book that -in my humble opinion- every parent/ caretaker should read. Especially for "beginners" (because a beginners 'cup' is empty).

This book covers almost every stage in a child's growing up - in short. It is written with a few stories / examples from the writers own family, including a special needs kid.
They give their opinion how a parent/ caretaker should react to certain situations, like tantrums, biting, discovering sexuality, sharing (with siblings), etc. etc.

Having found Sears' The Baby Book extremely useful in preparing for my first baby, I ordered the Good Behaviour Book hoping for more of his child-centred advice. I haven't put into practice any of the advice (still have 2 months of pregnancy to go!) but certainly what he writes is eye-opening and seems like it will be very useful in how to deal with a child, through their tantrums, their 'defiance' phase etc. He does emphasise how much effort and time parents need to put into parenting especially in the first couple of years of a kid's life so anybody looking for easy fixes won't find them here! Indeed, Sears continues with his promotion of attachment parenting and describes how it has been shown to be a very effective way of bringing about good behaviour. One final point, is that the book is written in a very down-to-earth way: there are no 'holier than thou' passages and Sears readily admits that he made similar mistakes to the ones he describes in bringing up his children with his wife. At this stage (preparing for a baby) I really value the book as a preparation for at least understanding how young children think and behave.

Sears. The masters...the only baby/child books to swear by. Yet to read it all but dipping in so far... All makes sense, as usual. Thanks Sears:)
