This is a great book! Other than some parenting advice that I do not agree with (going against natural/aware/attached parenting) I really found the advice helpful and interesting.

The specific topic I didn't agree with was manipulating children to our goals/desires. I think it was a small passage in there, tucked away in one chapter, but it still made me upset to read it, and I don't believe that parenting in the manner of trying to CONTROL your children will result in anything but rebellious behaviours.

The rest of the book was fabulous, as it really helped parents understand where their children's underlying needs were coming from, reminding them that the behavior usually comes from an emotion need or release.

This 30-year-old book has changed my life. I'd recommend it to absolutely anyone with kids of any age. It's very accessible, if slightly outdated in places, and it's chock-full of practical tips that can be used immediately. My 3 year old daughter isn't particularly difficult, but I've gone from an average of one time-out a day to virtually nil. I honestly feel she's becoming a more confident and capable child, and I feel far better prepared to cope with the regular upsets of life with children. I read this amid a binge of five self-help parenting books, and this was by far the most helpful on a practical level.
