Funny and Helpful Mar 19, 2008
My friend who has three kids talked about this book over the holidays and read parts of it that she was applying to her home situation. It was so funny and practical, I couldn't resist buying it for another friend who is a new parent, of course reading the book myself before passing it along. I don't think I've laughed so hard reading a book in a long time. The author's advice is wonderfully mild these days when the headlines are full of horribly abused children supposedly being disciplined for bad behavior. Nothing like that here. My friend who first told me about it swears that copying the encyclopedia works magic.
Great book Mar 7, 2008
This book is great! It uses a lot of common sense and gives many ideas. The book is reassuring and helpful in that you aren't afraid of making a mistake as a parent especially with so many things you hear in the media of what's "good" or "bad" for your kids. Then you turn and hear something new. I recommend this book to anyone who is serious about raising well-disciplined kids.
Practical, filled with refreshing humor Jul 7, 2007
After having been a teacher for many years, reading plenty of parenting books, stressing out, you name it, this came as a breath of fresh air. I was chuckling all the way through the book as Dr. Guarendi debunked one so-called "expert" after another. He uses practical wisdom as the father of ten children to show you that you can get through the maze of parenting unscathed....and your children can, too. He clearly shows that nobody is ever perfect and this will not irreparably harm anyone. The basic ingredient for all childrearing is just plain common sense....which is the way all children used to be raised. The reviewer who claimed all Dr. Guarendi proposes is simply spanking and more spanking ought to read this book more thoroughly. When I read that review, I could hardly keep from laughing...this individual would do well to delete that review and really read the book before he publishes something so absurd and obviously erroneous. The teacher here would have to give an "F" for a poorly written report. :-)
A discipline book you can really impliment Apr 1, 2007
As I was reading this book, it told me hints that I had never thought of before or heard before. This book puts it in terms that will stick and be easy to impliment.
The only poor review came from someone who did not read the book! Jan 8, 2007
This is a great book that truely applies common sense to child upbringing and can be applied regardless of religious background.
If you look at the all of the reviews from the one individual who gave a poor review, it looks like he did a topic search and left a bad review for any book he thought came from a Christian about child rearing. Although I have not read the other books that he gave 1-star to, based on this review I would be wary of believing any of the reviews he has written.
Read the book you won't regret it. Another good book the author wrote is "You're a Better Parent than you Think"
