I Wish I had Known Feb 13, 2007
This is a great book. I am a 48 year old grandmother of two little boys, who I babysit while my daughter works. I got this book to help me learn to deal with the older grandson. Reality discipline really works. I wish I had known about reality discipline when I was raising my own children. Reality discipline helps children see that there are consequences to their actions. It also removes the parent (or grandparent) from being the bad guy all the time. The book is entertaining, and would make a great study book for a Sunday school class.
A great find Feb 22, 2006
I have read many books on parenting. This is one of the best. Although written for a group, it is also very good if you are reading it on your own. This is not one of those quick-read-feel-good fluff filled parenting books. It is thought provoking. I would recommend this to non-religious parents as well. The biblical reference are good but most of the meat is valid even if you don't have a bible handy. My other favorites are the Townsend-Cloud boundries and parenting books. They are also first rate.

This title is an overview of Dr. Leman's other books. The ideas of reality discipline, healthy parental authority, using encouragement vs. praise with kids, and considering your child's birth order are insightful, but "Becoming the Parent...." leaves one yearning for more information. It felt incomplete, almost like an advertisement for his other books. His "Birth Order Book", and "Making Children Mind Without Losing Yours" were much better reading as they give a deeper picture of the concepts he's driving at. I say leave this small- group study guide to the small- groups and get Leman's more complete and better written books for your personal reading.
