2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed......., 23 Feb. 2008
This review is from: The Good Behaviour Book: How to Have a Better-Behaved Child from Birth to Age Ten (Paperback)
I was very disappointed with this book. It's difficult to read, it is not a book you can dip in and out of if you need help with a particular area. There are too many sub sections and it is very difficult to follow (keeps referring back to previous chapters which you then have to re-read to refresh your memory!)
Although I agree with certain methods in attachment parenting (some I don't and that doesn't mean I don't love and understand my child for all you Sears fans out there), I found the book condesending. Parents know how deeply we love our children and that how we discipline them is hugely important, but do we really need the guilt trip?
All in all, sounds great but is it really practical? When you have a screaming toddler under your arm as you carry him out of the supermarket, I think not! Try Christopher Green instead, much better read and offers sound and practical advice.

Christopher Green is definitely one to avoid, some people maybe have a lot to feel guilty about.

I think the line about a screaming toddler under your arm says it all...
the Sears approach runs a lot deeper than any 'naughty step' approach

I checked the link to Christopher Green, and was very disturbed by the reviews. The said author recommends sedating children to get peace and quiet and tying their bedroom door shut. Ouch!! eek!

Ok different strokes for different folks, but what about respecting children and their needs within a parenting model.

Personally the nights when our daughter didn't want to sleep till about 10 at night when she was a teething unsettled toddler we now look back on with such warmth. As Daddy had been working late, they were in fact the most wonderful times for family snuggles and play. This obsession with getting children to 'sleep through' is over-rated. I'm not saying no to good routine, but going with the flow too. A nice balance!
