Glorification of child abuse by a demented sadist. Mar 26, 2007
As if the first version of this book wasn't bad enough. Dobson (who is not a doctor, by the way) brags about the frequency with which he and his wife beat their children. He recommends whipping - not "spanking", but *whipping* - children as young as a year and a half old. He advocates beating them for the most innocent of mistakes. He basically wants every parent to terrorize their children until they are in a constant state of fear, never knowing what might be interpreted as "defiance". Bottom line: if you hate your children and want to warp them for life, by all means, follow the advice of this book. But save your money, because I'll sum it up right here: "Beat the hell out of your children every single day, with the flimsiest of excuses." Couldn't this psychopath have just hired a hooker to let him beat her up?
Wow! Feb 15, 2007
I haven't read this book before but I will soon! This comment though is to direct myself to all the comments about this book AND others like it. I really don't think its fair to blame an author for our parents mistakes on child-rearing. An author who, I'm sure has absolutely no intention to create "abusive" parents through his books but to "DARE" or suggest parents to take a new stand on becoming more open to setting limitations on our spoiled or soon to be out-of-control children. I was "abused" as a child also, physically, emotionally and mentally but I can't blame other people for the lack of wisdom my parents had as I was growing up. I URGE PARENTS to pray to God for wisdom and not make books like these as tools or excuses to HURT their children but to be wise, and raise children with love but love doesn't always mean hugs and kisses friends! Caring parents who's discipline and love toward their children probably not be completely understood always by their little one/s but WILL BE APPRECIATED later by their adult children later in life. SPOILED children will most likely NOT regard their parents as loving when such LIMITATIONS are established. It is through limitations and discipline that all human beings learn very valuable lessons that will eventually save them from future disasters. LOVE AND BLESSINGS TO ALL!
Dare to Abuse Feb 11, 2007
This book is about how to abuse children when you are an impatient parent. Children need unconditional love and patience. Children can learn that the parent is ultimately the boss when the parent is patient enough to teach. I once waited for my son for 4 hours because he refused to do as he was told. We would not do it his way, we would do it my way or no way. He learned I could wait for him longer than he could wait for me to give up. That was not the last of his demanding his way, but it never was anywhere near that bad again.
Want a quick fix? Use this book. Want a child who doesn't trust? Use this book. Want an excuse to hurt your parents for all the times they hurt you? Use this book.
Much more than just a book on discipline and punishment Feb 8, 2007
I read the original Dare to Discipline book when my first two kids were 5 and 3 yrs old. The book taught my wife and I that much of what our old fashioned parents did in the way of spanking and punishment was really for our own good. But the book did more than that, it taught us that NOT everything our parents did was healthy or esteem building. Dr Dobson stressed that spanking was best limited to willful disobediance and unsafe/harmful behavior. I've seen the opposite of this philosophy so many times at the Mall, the Grocery Store and the ball field it makes my head spin. Too many parents yell at their kids or ask their kids over and over again to do this or go there...and the kids merely blow them off. Why should they obey when there are no serious consequences for disrespect behavior? Other parents pull out the belt or paddle for all deviations (which, of course, borders on abuse). Anyway, my wife and I spanked occasionally when our kids were blowing us off...when they were purposefully hurting other kids...when they acting in an unsafe manner (playing in the street or sticking their fingers in the sockets). My older kids are both full 4-yr scholarship winners in college and their younger siblings are straight-A students. Our kids also receive consistent praise from teachers, coaches and church leaders for their positive and respectful attitudes. Dr Dobson's advice works...especially if both you and your spouse use the techniques consistently.
A n awful book from the dark ages of child rearing Feb 8, 2007
A book that suggests using something from around the house to hit your child with rather than you hand....this is a very dangerous book. Research is clear that physically punishing children does little good except teach them to fear you. I recommend looking at The Explosive Child if you are having problems with discipline. And maybe looking up the word. Its more about teaching and modeling than punishing and hitting.
