I personally liked the fact that Jane Nelson pointed out that towards age one, babies will go through a stage when they don't ask for breast or bottle, and it's the golden occasion for weaning. Hands up, I thought my DD needed milk so I didn't "force" it on her, but I was the one in a routine who failed to spot that she was ready to wean herself of it. And yes, a lot of parents of children well above the age of 2 have to go desperately want the bottles away but face a power struggle because they missed the spot.
Otherwise, that book is very against spanking, punishment, reward charts, coercive potty-training and eating, so that matches my own beliefs. My only bit of criticism would be that I would have liked the authors to say more about communication in those first 3 years, especially for the preverbal stage where I still am.
Helps you to get into the mind-set of your child and give simple but effective ways of dealing with all those little incidents you have with a young child around.
In a lot of ways it focuses of changing the way YOU think about the situation rather than modification of your child behaviour. I would recommend it to any like minded parents.
It had also helped me to remain patient and be more understanding of my little guy. Can I really expect him to stop crawling over to the kitchen drawers and taking everything out of them because I said "no" and provided a lecture on why he shouldn't do that? Obviously not, but I can put a safety latch on the drawer, provide constant supervision, and take him back to his toys.
There are chapters dedicated to eating, sleeping, and potty training which aren't any use to me now, but I have a feeling I will be referring to "Positive Discipline" frequently in the years to come.
