This review is from: Toddler Taming (Hardcover)
I stopped reading this book when I came to several very outdated ideas about toddler education. I think child psicology has gone a long way since this book was written thus the ideas described here are not the latest and in my opinion not the best.

I agree, stopped reading halfway. Sedating bad sleepers, tieing ropes to doors and smacking children who are no longer welcome in parents bed at night (hardly the childs fault that the parents have suddenly decided to change the rules, having let them sleep in their bed when it suited them!) Not impressed with book at all.

Nowhere in his book Dr Green suggests that smacking is acceptable for nothing else but to make sure that the dangerous behaviour ("when your child's life is flashing before your eyes" in Dr Green's words, for example running into the road) isn't repeated.
Here is another quote from his book: "A child who is sick or genuinely frightened will always have a rightful place in his parent's bed, though it's important to evict him once his health has returned"
