6 years later Jan 31, 2007
I bought this book when my daughter was 3 years old she is now 9 years. I read the book and listen to what Dr. Dobson was saying. The book did talk about phyical disapline I choose to skip that part. I did follow everything eles in there. My daughter had us beat has a parents we did not know what to do. (she was our 3rd child) She was so strong willed ( kick, screaming, refusing to go to bed, thowing food on floor and not picking it up ect..... Well after reading this book and thank the Lord for it: she is the most sweet loving, well behave child. She is not prefect she is still stronged will but in a very good way. This book teaches you, that you need to parent diffently then you are. I went into this book thinking I will give it 3 weeks if I don't see a change or start see a change then move on to the next. (we started to see a change with in one week) Well there was no next. You will be real please with the out come.
This is child abuse Jan 31, 2007
Parenting means to prepare a child for life, to nurture, to love, to guide, to teach. Discipline is loving guidance, not corporal punishment, where the child in a demeaning and destructive way wrongly learns that violence is a form of acceptable communication and guidance, by parents. There are no benefits to hit a child - It is destructive for a child's self worth, self esteem, and demeaning and disrespectful. Children have feelings and emotions as adults. It is extremely unfair and disgraceful of parents to misuse their power on weaker people - our children - who are defenseless and who don't have their own voice. Your child will be confused and think "Why is my mother and father whom I love and trust inflicting pain on me?" Hitting a child, will separate the bond between parents and a child, and will only make the child fearful of their parents. In addition, hitting a child won't teach and guide a child towards better behavior in a constructive and communicative way. By slapping someone, what do you learn? Nothing - only that it is okay to be antisocial and misbehave and to be violent. Parents who hit their children are THE ONE'S misbehaving. They are no good role models. These parents need parenting classes and therapy as they are victims of abuse themselves. These parents are out of control and out of knowledge. Think of the Golden rule: Treat other people, yes children are people too, as you with to be treated yourself, with respect, love and kindness. Children are children: They need a safe place to explore their boundaries and to test their parents' love, where parents act as wise, patient, and loving parents- as parents. Why spank a child whose brains are not yet fully developed? Children don't know right from wrong - It is our job to guide and teach them, not punish them. Christians should know better that "spare the rod, spoil the child" from Proverbs in Old Testament is not current any longer. Remember- With Jesus comes a better way, a New Law: The New Testament. Jesus does not spank the children. Jesus says "Let the children come to me". Jesus loves the little children. My fundamental questions are: Why do these parents give birth to children in the world if they can't raise children and love children? Where is the human intelligence here? These dysfunctional parents have grave limitations when it comes to parenting children, as they have not healed from their wounded past and subconsciousness. Their only driving force is to let the child take away their own pain from abuse, by forcing them to pay the price for their own pain, and force the child know how it feels like to be abused.

Must read for parents and a FAR cry from child abuse! Jan 19, 2007
This is an amazing book for any parent struggling with a strong willed child. Dr Dobson is a great help and has much wisdom to share on this topic! Despite what the previous reviewer says (I am doubtful that she read the book) this is the opposite of child abuse. She seems to wrongly assume that any time a parent spanks a child that they are "out of control". Dr Dobson strongly states in this book that a parent should NEVER spank a child in anger. It's almost as if she has some sort of axe to grind and is giving an unfair and illogical review of this wonderful book. Dr Dobson has been a champion of children and families for decades and helps parents know how to have healthy boundries and fair boundries for their children. Sometimes "love must be tough" to be effective and to keep a child safe from his own destructive behavior... The idea that any form of spanking is child abuse is ridiculas at best and ignorant at worst. The key is to spank only when the child has directly disobeyed and to NEVER do it in anger, which is what Dr Dobson carefully explains. This type of spanking is NOT "out of control" and is always followed up by affection and reconcilliation between the parent and child...Dr Dobson helps parents know how to deal with a strong willed child so that they do not lose control but still have boundries and structure in the home. I think the previous reviewer who says she is the wife of a Pediatrician must not have had any strong willed children in her own household...Her recommendations would not "fly" with this type of personality. There are MANY parents that will attest to the fact that "time out" does not work with their strong willed child. If a strong-willed child feels that they control the home and dont have to obey authority, they grow up to be self indulgent and disliked by all and their future will be severly affected...This is just as much child abuse as someone who spanks out of control...There is a BIG difference between "spanking" and "hitting". She incorrectly assumes they are one and the same. Dr Dobson will teach you the difference in this important book! I also highly recommend his book called "Dare To Discipline" for those struggling with parenting. Dr Dobson is a God send in todays permissive culture!
