Item description for On Becoming Childwise: Parenting Your Child from 3 to 7 Years by Gary Ezzo & Robert Buckham...
Overview The growth phase between five and eight years of age, is a time when parental training and encouragement are major players in a child's developing world. These early school years awaken within a child a sense of fearful adventure in an ever-expanding world outside the confines of mom and dad. It is a time when his intellect develops sufficiently to allow purposeful interaction with adults and other children. As that interaction begins, he begins to process experiences and sensations from his deepening relationships that direct the way he interprets life. As his world unfolds, new and broader expectations are realized. Now he is confronted with role functions, norms, and expected standards of conduct which sometimes conflict with each other as well as with his own self-centered perceptions.

Great ideas for positive parenting Feb 10, 2007
This book gave me GREAT ideas on how to help build moral character into my children! Good advice and perspective for creating a peaceful, loving home atmosphere too. A must-read for any parent!

Please people open your eyes to the Ezzo's scam before it hurts your family. He has NO background or education in child development or pediatrics. He and his wife are bilking a blind and uneducated set of people who of course want to grow there kids God's way. Insane.
Excellent Guidance - Lead by Example Jan 3, 2007
This book not only provides good how-to's, but also relates to why younger children are becoming more and more disrespectful in today's society. I was surprised on how the book was less focused on training the child but more on coaching and retraining Mom and Dad! Lead by example is the true 'moral of the story'. I have implemented some facets and seen positive results/behaviours. Remember people,.....this, as any child-help-book is advice....you either take it or leave it.
Loved it! Dec 12, 2006
We have four children (ages 7-2). This book is filled with wonderful advice. I read the book twice and took notes. We are using, "Yes, Mommy" and "Yes, Daddy" and it has been very helpful in preventing the need for discipline. I love the suggestion that children need to know not only what they did wrong, but also the principle behind it. I also liked the idea of teaching the children the difference of saying, "I'm sorry" and "Will you forgive me?". This book is wonderful for any parent, whether they are experiencing huge discipline issues, or whether they just need a few more tools to add to their "belt".
About Gary Ezzo Nov 8, 2006
Here is a blurb about the authors of this book, By Patty Donohue-Carey, B.S., LCCE, CLE. This was actually dealing with their "Babywise" book, but I feel it is still applicable- know who you are taking advice from BEFORE you isolate, malnurish and alienate your children!
"Although Gary Ezzo does not have a college degree, he has a master's degree in Christian Ministry through a seminary extension program that gave credit for life and work experience. Anne Marie Ezzo is a licensed R.N., but worked only for a short period in the field over twenty years ago. She is also listed as a childbirth educator, self-certified through her own program."
Why would anyone take advice from people who aren't even capable of acheiving basic credentials? Just thought people should know!
