Reviews - What do customers think about Discipline Without Shouting or Spanking: Practical Solutions to the Most Common Preschool Behavior Problems?
This book was wonderful Oct 29, 2007
I've used these techniques on my child and other children and they always worked. Simply put, discipline is teaching. Tantrums are tantrums no matter who throws them... and so is everything else. You may not need every section, but those you do really help - and not just with the child! I would send them to time out and then sit down and read the section over to calm myself down. Really simply written, clear and easy to use.
Toddler Handbook Jan 4, 2007
This is a well thought out handbook for parents of toddler through preschool age. A mother of three boys, only one of which is stil in preschool, I would have liked to have found this book sooner. My boys however have outgrown most of the behaviors described in the book. I would strongly recommend this book for a new parent, but if your child is older than three, I would pass on this one.
Some good ideas... Dec 9, 2006
This book is divided into behavior problems, such as, "Playing With Food", "Taking Things", "Lying", etc... and then gives you a list of steps to avoid the problem and correct the misbehavior. It also provides "real-life" situations that show how parents applied the approach outlined.
However, the books that I have personally found to be the most useful are the ones that outline approaches that can be applied to every disciplinary problem, such as, "1-2-3 Magic" which still works on my kids after 2.5 years, and "Time-In", which teaches kids to think about their behavior and its consequences, and how to make amends when necessary.
I can see this particular book being useful for trouble shooting specific problems, if other approaches aren't effective, but I didn't feel the need to keep it on my bookshelf and I've passed it on to a neighbor.
Helps Keep your anger level down! Feb 17, 2006
This book is loaded with very useful and effective ways to manage behavior problems. The struggles are fewer, and lower level, and no one feels bullied at the end. I never have to use, "because I am the MOMMY, that's why!"
This book really works! Super Nanny must have read it!! Jun 16, 2005
I purchased an earlier edition of this book when my first son was a toddler. The method described in this book is straightforward, sensible, logical, and easily accessible in times of need. Following these methods has always worked wonders with my first child, and is presently working beautifully with my second. This book contains advice that is so simple and logical that it can be fully understood by preschool age children, and yet is extremely effective with older children as well. The book is relatively short, and broken down into specific behavior areas, so it is very easy to read, even for a BUSY new mother. I wish my parents would have had this book available to them when I was a child. Beatings and screaming only left me angry and isolated. My children respect me and we have very loving relationships because they understand my rules and they know what happens each time they misbehave. So we have more time for positive interaction.
It usually only takes a few applications of this method to eliminate undesirable behavior. Very seldom, it is still necessary to swat a child on the backside once or twice when all other methods have been exhausted, of course. Spanking as a LAST RESORT, AFTER all the measures advised in this book have been exhausted, is very seldom necessary. I praise the authors and thank them enormously. That this book is still being published in new editions shows that it is an excellent book. I think Super Nanny must have read this book!
