The No-Cry Discipline Solution: Gentle ways to pro&hellip by Elizabeth Pantley
8 of 8 people found the following review helpful
This book completely altered the way I "disciplined" my kids. I often yelled at them for lack of a better method for discipline. I never worked. The kids would only cry, scream and fight even more, and I felt worse every time this happened.

The book helped me change that. It's often not easy combining three under fives, a full time job and a husband who is out of the country all week, every week. But my girls are amazing.

She is happy, content and well rested, and… Read more

I have read most of Jeffrey Deavers books and love them. Sadly this was a true disappointment. The story was sloppy and the storyline kept getting lost in all the trivia.

Some of the characters are very well described and give a real-life feeling. However this realness of some of the characters only makes the fiction-ness of other even more clear (somehow all of the professors seem to be sleeping with students???). And some characters had no use at all in the book (not even story-wise). Ben Breck provided no value at all to the story for me.

The story seemed to come to a climax several times in the book, but when the story finally reached its climax, it got lost… Read more
