Boundries with Kids Jan 29, 2007
Excellent practical advise. Similar philosophy to Love and Logic parenting books which I also love. I highly recommend this book for parents wanting to improve or wanting reinforcement that they are doing well.
a great book for parenting through all ages and stages! Jan 11, 2007
I read this book before I had my son, and I loved it. I am a child counselor, and I would put this on my recommended reading list for parents because it is very comprehensive. Now that I am actually a parent, I appreciate it even more. I think it is a wonderful, Biblical perspective on parenting. I especially appreciate its views on power and control - so helpful with a two year old! I've reminded myself hundreds of times "don't engage in the protest," and it helps keep everyone much calmer and situations get worked through more quickly. Definitely a "must read!"
Good book Jan 10, 2007
Great book with excellent advice. Boundaries - how very simple but so lacking these days. It does have biblical verses all throughout, so if you're Bible shy, these may annoy you.
Good Advice, Annoying Bible References Dec 11, 2006
The advice given in the book was good, and a lot of good points were made, but I found the constant references to the Bible very annoying. I am not a religious person, and wouldn't have minded a few references, but it was a little too much for my liking. It read more like a sermon, and I didn't realize that when I had purchased it.
Boundaries with Kids Aug 13, 2006
GREAT!!!!! I only wish that I had read this book when my children were toddlers. If children came with a book, this would be the one. As parents, our ultimate goal should be to raise responsibile independent adults. This book gives a whole new perspective on parenting. Highly recommended.
