Reviews - What do customers think about Children: The Challenge : The Classic Work on Improving Parent-Child Relations--Intelligent, Humane & Eminently Practical (Plume)?
Very good for psychotherapists, educators, parents Apr 9, 2008
This is a very good book. Dreikurs is the second master in the history of Individual Psychology. Go look for him on wikipedia!
He shares with us some of his wisdom. The adlerian principles are clearly described and Dreikurs uses them to make the differences between what is useful and what is not useful in children behaviour. Also he gives solution and discusses a lot of cases. I consider this book like a referential one to understand the adlerian psychology. In the meantime this book is gold for those who work with children! Have a good reading!
A Great Book Feb 8, 2008
This was my favorite book that my pediatrician recommended when my children were little; it had the best analysis of children's behavior and how to respond to them. My kids are now grown and I am buying this book for them to read in preparation for raising their children. It is a great resource for understanding children and how to respond to them appropriately.
The Best Parenting Book EVER! Dec 20, 2007
I've been a child/family psychologist for over thirty years. This is, I'm convinced of it, the single most important book ever written for parents who want to learn a "system" for parenting their kids. I was exposed to this book in grad school in the late seventies, and I've been recommending it to parents ever since. Everyone loves it! I give it as gifts to new parents when their firstborns come into the world.
Discipline with insight May 15, 2007
I would recommend this book to parents. It helps the reader to look at how situations are promoted through our actions and word usage. The book is a bit annoying as it is outdated in word usage, a little stereotyped as to "mother", "father" roles. However, still a good read, promoting democracy and independece to our children.
A MUST READ! Mar 14, 2007
I am not done reading this book yet however, the tips are wonderful for any parent who is having troubles with their kid. Or this book is great for first time parents who want to raise their kid different from the way they were raised.
