Reviews - What do customers think about Raising Great Kids in a Tough World?

Raising Great Kids in Tough World  Aug 18, 2006
Probably good for some people but for me, it was far too general. I prefer the book Raising Good Kids (from birth to the Teenage years) by Dr Thomas Lickona.
 
Give me a few years before I try any of this  Jul 23, 2006
First of all, let me say that I couldn't get past Part I before I realized that this was not the book for teaching me to deal with my willful two-year-old (my oldest child). You can only talk positively and try to distract so much before you have to get negative on occasion. She acted as if you should never tell a child 'no'. When my oldest child is hitting her baby sister in the head because she can see that I'm having trouble with a breastfeeding session (trying to help, but not in the best way), I'm not concerned with distracting her or punishing in a positive way. I'm more concerned that she doesn't inflict brain damage on her younger sister.

Later in the book (yes, I peeked ahead), she sets guidelines for spanking. I felt that those guidelines were not appropriate for a child as young as mine. I don't feel that it's appropriate to spank her with anything but my hand. I want to discipline her, but I want to be sure I'm not harming her as I do so.

Her methods may work very well on pre-teens and teenagers, but I just don't feel that they're very useful for a two-year-old whose communication skills are still developing. And by the teenage years, they're too old to punish by spanking. Maybe I'll pick this book up again when my oldest is around four years old. I don't think that these techniques are appropriate for children of all ages, as purported, but I might find them really helpful later on.
 
Raising Great Kids in a Tough World  May 31, 2005
Susan McConnell's "Raising Great Kids in a Tough World" offers a creative and unique perspective on parenting. She suggests easy-to-implement ideas and offers excellent advice on dealing with everyday situations you encounter with your children in a positive rather than negative way. I definitely recommend it.
 
A must read for all parents  Apr 26, 2005
This is a great book. It is very relevant to issues faced while raising children in today's world. This is a must read for all parents!
